The Thirteen Clocks
James Thurber in undoubtedly a genius, and the Thirteen Clocks is probably his best work. Not only that, but it is one of the best fairy tales ever written, up there with the finest of the Brothers Grimm. This story quite literally features tears of laughter, tears of joy, and "something very much like nothing anyone had see before". In this book are princesses and monsters and nonsense that would make Lewis Carroll proud. This book is a masterpiece.
