The  Tough Guide to Fantasyland - Diana Wynne Jones8.84

The Tough Guide to Fantasyland is a comprehensive guide for those undertaking Tours of Fantasyland. This authoritative A-Z constitutes an essential source of information for all who dare to venture into these imaginative hinterlands, providing acute insights into such mysteries as how HORSES reproduce, the varying types of VIRGIN and the importance of CLOAKS to those embarking on the Tour. Features include:

* A map.
* Lively background on the denizens you will meet, including Barbarian Hordes, and Elves who claim they did not evolve like humans... Certainly there seems to be no Elvish ancestral ape.
* Full details on catering arrangements: Beer always foams and is invariably delivered in tankards. The Management is not concerned with the taste of it. That is your funeral.
* Useful hints on coping in Fantasyland: Armour is, in the opinion of the Management, cheating. Torture is obligatory at some stage in the Tour.

Whether you're a first-time visitor or a committed Fantasyland traveller, The Tough Guide has everything you need to get the most from your Tour.
