    About Frank R. Stockton


    1. Frank Richard Stockton was an American writer and humorist, best known today for a series of innovative children s fairy tales that were widely popular during the last decades of the 19th century Stockton avoided the didactic moralizing common to children s stories of the time, instead using clever humor to poke at greed, violence, abuse of power and other human foibles, describing his fantastic characters adventures in a charming, matter of fact way.

    1. So far this is my favorite of Stockton s writing, and I ve reread it several times to try to gather up nuance The humor is great, and the hero has quite a difficult time with a charming young lady of his acquaintance, Mrs Null Her very name has a story behind it, which is part of what leads to a humorous and pleasant conclusion.
