       Additional Information  
     
      In the English village of Midmeddlecum, Major Palfrey asks his two daughters to behave while he is off at war. Sighs daughter Dinah, "I think that we are quite likely to be bad, however hard we try not to be." Sure enough, Dinah and her sister Dorinda soon settle down to mischief. They convince a judge that minds must be changed as often as socks, stage an escape from the local zoo (thanks to a witch's potion which turns them into kangaroos), and - in the company of a golden puma and silver falcon - set off to rescue their father from the wicked tyrant of Bombardy. A tale of hilarity and great adventure, The Wind on the Moon is also a work of seriousness; after all, "life without freedom," as the valiant puma makes clear, "is a poor, poor thing."
