The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

Pilar's mother had been a famous dancer, and Pilar wanted to grow up to be a dancer too. In the chest of treasures her mother had left her, Pilar found a pair of wonderful castanets, a beautiful fan from Vallodolid, a sharp knife from Toledo, a proud comb from Barcelona, and a cloak that Tony, a childhood playmate of her mother's, had worn. There were stories about all of these souvenirs, and about the fascinating places from which they had come.

Best of all Pilar loved the castanets and the wonderful legends that had grown up around them. And it was the castanets that brought her her chance to take lessons with the best dancing master in all Spain.

Colorful, rich in story and legend, modern in her great cities, splendid in her historic cathedrals Spain stirs the imagination. In this interesting story of a Spanish child, Mrs. Brandeis presents a vivid picture of this fascinating country.
