My "Dark is Rising" is a newer edition, but my copy of Cooper's "Over 
Sea, Under Stone" is the Puffin and is set in Juliana as well.It's 
much more vertical than Pilgrim.

And, actually, Ged is supposed to be very dark-skinned as well (of 
course, since he's a hawk on the cover who can tell!).


Fairy tales are not true--fairy tales are important, and they are not 
true, they are more than true. Not because they tell us that dragons 
exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be defeated.
