This 1895 collection makes use of imagery from Greek mythology to paint the adult world as one of aloof Olympians out of touch with the inner, imaginative lives of their own children. Each story deals with the struggle between children and adults. Contents include A White-Washed Uncle, The Finding of the Princess, The Argonauts, and The Secret Drawer.
