Subject: Three modern children (siblings) & their young tutor travel back in time to Celtic Britain, accompanying a wanderer who turns out to be a young prince of the Catuvellani.
Unique Qualities: US title (Funk): Curtain of Mist
Rating: ÒA rather long book, in quite fine print with unimpressive sketches as chapter headings, a glossary & a bibliography... does not immediately invite readers. We hope these superficial things deter only those who would not enjoy the book...For the real reader, who follows the adventures of the young teacher & the 3 children in this book through the Ôcurtain of mistÕ will have a fine experience.Ó MS Libby, NY Herald Tribune Bk R p14 N 24 Ô57
