Reader's note

This brilliant vintage book is a fantasy story with a modern day twist! It is the tale of George Caldwell who teaches general science at Olinger High School, where his son Peter is a pupil. Three winter days, during which bad weather prevents them from returning to the farmhouse where Mrs Caldwell and her father are waiting for them, provide the substance of this fantastic novel. Time Magazine states - The title of figure of The Centaur is John Updike's best creation yet. - this sentence may puzzle, because how can a man called Caldwell be the 'title figure' of a book called the Centaur? Purchase this wonderful old book to find out! Add this one to your home library today.
