MASEFIELD, John (John Edward), 1878-1967 : THE BOX OF DELIGHTS : OR, WHEN THE WOLVES WERE RUNNING.
London : William Heinemann, (1935). First edition. “‘Christmas ought to be brought up to date’, Maria said; ‘it ought to have gangsters and aeroplanes and a lot of automatic pistols’”. Kay Harker and the battle for the magical box which annihilates space and time — “The children will like it. And grown-ups will probably revel in it” (The Scotsman, 5th September 1935); “One of the most delicious children’s stories I have ever read” (Western Mail, 2nd January 1936). More of a loose companion piece than strictly speaking a sequel to Masefield’s “The Midnight Folk” (1927).
