Old Merlin tells him a story of fighting dragons, clashing armies, and Merlin's own youth and prophetic dreams. The wizard's story teaches Arthur about trusting in himself and inspires an "ordinary" boy to have the courage to rise to greatness.

    Subtitled Fantasy, Faerie, and Folklore in the Literature of Childhood, this small book of essays was first my position papers for the EdD I never quite got. Originally published in hardcover by Philomel and then brought out a few years later in a trade paperback, this book of essays has become well identified with me. And the phrase, "Touch magic, pass it on" shows up in the oddest places. After five years out of print, the book in an expanded and revised edition has been reissued by the folklore publisher August House.
