First published 150 years ago, John Ruskin’s only children’s story is still relevant today, with its message about life, greed and the environment. Readers of any age will respond to young Gluck’s adventures as he succeeds against the wiles of his two evil brothers Hans and Schwartz, and to the drama of mountains and weather, brought to life for the first time in colour in Quentin Blake’s witty and atmospheric illustrations.
