The Fountains: A Fairy Tale
A rare outing for Dr Johnson's delightful but critically overlooked tale for children. Johnson enthusiasts can compare it with his major works Rasselas and The Vanity Of Human Wishes, but youngsters will just enjoy the story of Floretta, a sparky girl who is very different from the passive fairy-tale heroines of the era.
