The Farthest-Away Mountain



by Lynne Reid Banks

Published 1976

This is a happy little story about a girl who travels to a mountain.  Along the way, she meets an amiable frog, some sad gargoyles, a dreadful giant, a wicked witch, and a pterodactyl.

While an enjoyable tale, it is aimed for slightly younger readers, and the characters do not possess much depth.  It was a nice once-read, but not a book I particularly want to purchase for my personal collection.  3/5.
