Evertype: Eileen's Adventures in Wordland

Postby Evertype » Thu Dec 16, 2010 11:06 pm

Evertype would like to announce the publication of a new edition of Eileen's Adventures in Wordland, a tale inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland books, written 1920 by Zillah K. Macdonald and illustrated by Stuart Hay.

From the back cover:

Zillah Katherine Macdonald was born in 1885 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and is noted for her children’s books, as well as for a series of “career romances for young moderns”.

Eileen’s Adventures in Wordland is Macdonald’s first novel for children, and is a real delight for lovers of words and wordplay. Eileen’s companion “X” leads her to encounters ranging from a meeting with Blighty, a word born during the first World War, to meeting with Grandmother Indo-European, who introduces Eileen to a number of her “language children”. Embellished by Stuart Hay’s charming illustrations, this “life story of our Word friends” will appeal to readers young and old who delight in the sounds and sense of language
