Oh, the fatal F is in her name, and no-one can take it out! Chapter by chapter, he travels up the wonderful river in a talking boat, cares for Mopsa as she grows, and learns that a human kiss can transform a "common one-foot-one fairy" ruled entirely by instinct into a fairy queen who can bleed, laugh and cry and reason and know what is going to happen.
