THE GOBLIN'S GLEN
"After Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, the artist who dominated the fairy genre in Australian children's books was Harold Gaze." – Marcie Muir
A group of fairy and fantasy stories with Inkelwink, Inkelwunk, pixies and more. Except for a short stint at art school in London, Gaze was largely a self-taught artist. Eventually he moved to Pasadena, where he did some work for Disney Studios. Gaze's work will likely appeal to those who appreciate Rackham and Outhwaite.
