Product Details


“Contemporary children…will find wit and enchantment in ‘Mistress Masham’s Repose,’ a paperback reprint of the 1946 novel by White…it’s a charming excursion from the fellow who penned the Arthurian tale, ‘The Once and Future King.’” —Meghan Cox Gurdon, The Wall Street Journal

“A masterpiece of narration, literary ingenuity, humor and satire.” —Commonweal

“I can think of few greater pleasures in reading aloud to a bookish child than to read that child first Gulliver’s Travels and then Mistress Masham right after…. It is a stunning book for a child to know.” —Noel Perrin

“It is literate, graceful and malicious…altogether a really charming contrivance.”
— Diana Trilling

“Readers of earlier books by T.H. White (The Sword in the StoneWitch in the Wood, The Ill-made Knight) can expect the able recreation of period decor, the faculty of transmuting accepted literature into new life, elements of very human humor.”
— Kirkus Reviews

“The action is shot through with humor, and the Lilliputians, with their eighteenth-century manner of speech and dress, are characters not soon forgotten.”
— The Horn Book

“One of the finest, most magical and extraordinary children’s books ever written.”
— Anne Fine, Children’s Laureate of Britain

“This is an exquisite filigree…As its Lilliputians would say, it is a Work to be held in high Esteam by all true Persons of Quality.” —Basil Davenport

“There is, in fact, nothing which can be said about the book except to praise it without limit.” —Thomas Sugrue
