Published first in the 1920s The Midnight Folk is a middle grade book and the first in the Kay Harker series featuring Kay who is on a mission to locate the missing treasure left behind by his great grandfather and to stop the bad characters from finding it first It is magical esue at times and as one reviewer has already written here on goodreads it is reminiscent of another popular children s classic called Alice In Wonderland I liked the fantasy and talking animals side of the story just not the slow pacing or parts of the writing style I think Masefield s poetry would suit me better personally as a reader to his works

Absolute classic I place this and its seuel The Box of Delights right beside The Chronicles of Narnia and The Children of Green Knowe series The imagination at work here is that of a genius storyteller The imagery the prose and the phrasing create an unforgettable adventure story full of magic and fantasy and lost treasure There are witches and talking animals and toys that come to life I guess you can tell that I thoroughly enjoyed this
