The Door in the Air and Other Stories by Margaret Mahy

Door in the Air

The Door in the Air and Other Stories is my favourite book by Margaret Mahy, a fantastic (in both senses) kiwi children’s author. I have two favourite stories from this book. The first is The Work of Art, which makes fun of art critics who go ga-ga over a cake that they mistake for art. The second is The Bridge Builder, a whimsical story about a man who builds bridges just for the sake of it, with many beautiful descriptions of his bridges.
