A children's classic with stunning new artwork

When young Mossy hears the legend that anyone who manages to find the end of a rainbow will be rewarded with a golden key, he becomes determined to do exactly that. But finding the golden key is the easy part — discovering what it unlocks is a much harder task. Together with a runaway girl named Tangle, the two set out to find the key's purpose — and discover their own along the way.

George MacDonald's beloved fairytale is brought to life by Ruth Sanderson's sumptuous illustrations, making this a perfect gift for readers of all ages.
