Elizabeth Wexfordabout this book: A Dainty Dish is a short story, intended for an adult audience, but is also suitable for reading to children. It is the first in a series of chronological, linked stories about the Realm of Igiely Glooe Poonge, a fictional medieval village in England.
In the opening story (A Dainty Dish), we are introduced to King Godwin, the ruler of Igiely, his son, Prince Terric, Blacwin, an honest and heartie peasant, his wife Richolda and niece Albreda as well as Wimarc, Lord of the Manor of Glooe, in the Realm of Igiely, who has won a Knighthood for valour.
A Dainty Dish is an entertaining tale based on a medieval fable, dealing with greed. Elizabeth Wexford's website, www.elizabethwexford.com, provides information about future stories, as well as details about the inhabitants of Igiely Glooe Poonge and the nearby town of Oobangilkto.
Inspiration for A Dainty Dish came from the book, 'The Discoverie of Witchcraft by Reginald Scot - first published in the sixteenth century.
