Mistress Masham's Repose, by the author of the much-adored book for children The Once and Future King, tells the story of ten-year-old Maria, orphaned mistress of Malplaquet, who discovers the secret of her deteriorating estate. On a deserted island at its far corner, in the temple nicknamed Mistress Masham's Repose, live an entire community of people - "The People," as they call themselves - all only inches tall. With the help of her only friend, the absurdly erudite Professor, Maria soon learns that this settlement is no less than the kingdom of Lilliput (first seen in Gulliver's Travels) in exile. Safely hidden for centuries, the Lilliputians are immediately endangered by Maria's well-meaning but clumsy attempts to improve their lot, but their situation grows truly ominous when they are discovered by Maria's greedy guardians, who look at The People and see only the potential for profit.--Amazon
