My mom read this story to me when I was 6 years old and it has lived in my memory for so long, I am now nearly 40! I have three children of my own now and I wanted to share the story with them. I have searched for this book in every bookstore for as long as I can remember- I am finally a bit more computer savvy and was able to get it on Amazon. Every night my kids and I sit and read a chapter and we are loving it. It was funny as I remembered the book being a lot thicker as a child so when I opened it I was slightly disappointed! The story is beautiful and we havent quite finished it - all I remember that it is very sad! All I can say no other book has lived in my memory like the King of the Copper Mountain, and I recommend it - my three children are 3, 5 and 7 and they are all riveted! Enjoy

This beautiful, captivating story is one that touches your heart with its moving narrative and truth-drawing poignancy. This captures your imagination as you delight in the most remarkable and extraordinary events and places, as you soar cloud high as a spark is lit for that love of all things fantastical. It is a story that is a timeless classic and which will be re-read time and time again, as having finished reading this I am now reading it to my nephews. Full of thrilling adventure, exciting plot twists and memorable characters that you instantly connect with this story is a magnificent triumph by an outstanding author. The cover illustration with the King's long bears and the Hare holding a magical lamp is enchanting, as the vibrant orange tones make it stand-out on the bookshelf catching your eye. For those children who are fascinated with magic, animals and other mythical creatures then they will be delighted by this heartwarming tale, which will appeal also to first-time readers to those who remember the story from their childhood. The NEW illustrations by Sally J Collins (the author's daughter) are exquisite and really do bring the tale to life before your very eyes, as this book is something to treasure for many years to come!

At the end of his thousand-year reign of the Copper Mountains, King Mansolain is tired and his heart is slowing down. When his attendant, the Hare, consults the Wonder Doctor, he is told he must keep the King engaged in life by telling him a story every night until the Doctor can find a cure.
The search is on for a nightly story more wonderful than the last, and one by one the Kingdom's inhabitants arrive with theirs; the ferocious Wolf, the lovesick Donkey, the fire-breathing three-headed Dragon. Last to arrive is the Dwarf with four ancient books and a prophecy that the King will live for another thousand years - but only if the Wonder Doctor returns in time.

This enthralling, magical tale will appeal to readers who love the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling, The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien, classic Grimm's fairytales and adventures such as with Merlin & King Arthur. If you enjoy the fantasy genre or magical tales and adventure stories such as (five children & IT, Narnia or Raul Dahl's stories) then this is certainly a must-read. `The King of the Copper Mountains' is something that equally both boys & girls will love, young adults, teenagers and adult readers such as myself who grew up with the story. This beautiful book will always have a special place in my heart...

Reading this book is like holding pure magic in the palm of your hand.

I sometimes wonder whether publishers every look at their back-lists, because this is a jewel of a book that any child of 6-10 would adore. In fact, it's what got my son, a reluctant reader, hooked on books.
The King of the Copper Mountain, Mansolain, is 1000 years old and his heart is running down. The brave and kindly Witch Doctor sets out on a perilous quest to find the medicine to make it like young again, but to keep him alive he sends back the animals he meets on his journeys to tell an exicting story to make his heart beat more strongly. And my goodness, do they make a child's heart beat too. How a wolf outwits a dreadful witch, how a horse with golden hooves wins his freedom, how a dragon escapes from a cruel mistress after being sold off by his drunken father all thrill. Yet there are other stories of heart-rending gentleness and simplicity - a rabbit who loses his borther in the sand-dunes, a beetle in search of the perfect hom, a duck who stubbornly refuses to help a dwarf and loses a chance of flying to another world. Most intriguingly of all, the stories all inter-link, so that we discover more about the mysterious king and his copper castle. Beautifully written in a haunting, deceptively simple prose that evokes deep feeling this is a classic. I loved it as a child, and my own children love it too. Please, someone, BRING IT BACK.

A 1000 yr. old King is dying and only the Wonder Doctor can save him by collecting a magic plant which blooms but once a year. On his travels to find the plant the doctor tells all the animals he meets to go the the Copper Castle and tell the king a story, only these will keep him alive until the doctor returns. The animal's stories are both enchanting and captivating fitting together like the pieces of a puzzle. Dwarves, dragons and magical lands will keep your interest until the end which, like a good malt whisky, is rounded and smooth. I first read this book at the age of 8 and have read it at least 15 times since. I am a primary school teacher and have read it to all the classes I have taught. This books is appealing to all age ranges, including adults. If you find a copy BUY it! You will not be disappointed.
