dc.description.abstractI had just catalogued the first book in this series when I saw AwesomeBooks' offer of this second. I had wondered about further books as I catalogued the first. As I wrote there, Kyber wrote in German and died in 1933. I become more convinced of what I wrote there: Kyber's stories are whistful, hopeful, positive. The Story of the Hollow Nut (33-37) is that of a fairytale child who falls to earth. With a little time, she gets herself into a hollow nut. Soon enough, she has brought with her into the nut a prince, the heavens, and a baby. The Little Professor Made of Roots (78-82) reveals, I believe, a good deal of Kyber's own philosophy. The little professor is a part of the tree but proclaims his own intelligence and independence. He denies what he has not experienced, like the loveliness of the top of the tree of which he is a part. The little professor is all about thinking; in thinking, he gives off light. But he has no idea what light there can be when a romantic meeting takes place in the part of his own tree that he himself believes does not exist.en_US
