Enchanting

Who hasn't, at one time or another, imagined what it might be like to be small enough to crawl through a cat-flap?


And do other fantastical things.







I bought this book a little while back, it's nearly 50 years old.  Lovely stuff.


The Enchanted Forest by Hans Malmberg and Gunnel Linde 1966

  1. Yes, truly enchanting. I did try crawling through a cat flap once. It's nigh on impossible.

    1. I'm sure you're not alone ;-)
      It wasn't whilst under the influence of alcohol by any chance, was it?

  2. Frankly I find a badger that size absolutely terrifying - I saw what they did to one of my chickens ! That and repeat viewings of assorted fifties and sixties 'shrink ray' sci fi films, I'll stay as I am thanks !!!

    1. I'm with you BM. It's all a bit Incredible Shrinking Man. I could just about handle Land of the Giants, but I quite like the size I am, thank you very much.

    2. So I can't interest either of you in these pills I bought from the White Rabbit Pharmacy, then?

  3. Enchanting yes, but the beak of that crow looks a little too sharp for my liking. The woodpecker's too. I'll stay at my fully grown 6' 6" thanks! My answer 45 years ago might've been quite different though.

    1. I agree... I go back to being about 9 or 10 when I look at these pictures and just want to fly on the backs of those birds. Just think how big your coconut feeders would need to be, though...

    2. Yeah. The problem with being small enough to get through the cat door is cats. I'm on the back porch with one right now...he has a lizard cornered.

    3. I hope that story had a happy ending for the lizard, Erik.

  4. I'd love to be floating through that swamp in a bucket with my little mouse companion. What a great find, C!

    1. It's charming, isn't it? I find the 'mouse boat' particularly appealing too.

  5. Getting your head through is relatively easy, its the shoulders that cause the problem.
