At any exceptional lurch of the waggon. struck one. or one-and-a-half. in hurt tones .... The day being the sixth of April. the Durbeyfield waggon met many other waggons with families on the summit of the load. which was built on a wellnigh unvarying principle. as peculiar. probably. to the rural labourer as the hexagon to the bee.

Not for nothing is it that the most enduringly successful rural fantasies have been books for children: The Wind in the Willows, Kipling's Puck of Pook's Hill (1906), John Masefield's The Midnight Folk (1927), and the tales of Beatrix Potter (most of which were written between 1900 and 1913). And it is in children's fiction that the tradition has continued to flourish, as in the play upon the mythological associations of specific English landscapes in the work of William Mayne and Alan Garner, and in Richard Adams's Watership Down (1972), where the beast fable receives a sustained and essentially adult treatment in a readily recognisable locality.
