Format: Hardcover
These were the last stories I ever read to my daughter and as such have a special place in my heart. May I encourage you to join the fan club? Rather like C S Lewis' series these books involve successive generations of children being translated into another time/world; frequently meeting as benine "ghosts" former generations of their own family. Linking the series is the common thread of the (christian) granny, who adds another "great" for each generation of children, and her wonderful home, half castle, half chateau, set in the heart of the English countryside. The denuement of "Stranger" is a dignified, heroic climax to a wonderful fantasy. Reading these books will help any child see themselves as part of the continuing pattern of life, made better by love and a generous spirt.

Format: Paperback
One of five books about an old house which has a strange effect on all who stay in it - full of a 'sense of place'. This one is about a gorrilla growing up in the forest - lots of luscious description of a forest, trees, rivers and colourful inserts. Then the gorilla is captured and put behind bars in a London zoo, where he is visited by a Chinese boy who feels sorry for him and would like to see him free again. The boy spends a holiday at Green Knowe. The gorilla escapes and ends up in the woods behind the house, where the boy brings it food and they strike up a close relationship until the men come for it - and shoot it owing to a misunderstanding, thinking it is attacking the boy, Good for starting moral discussion on animal welfare, on the right thing to do - the boy tries to hide information to stop the capture. Also the way in which lonely people dish out love on pets/animals if there are no people in their lives.

I really enjoyed reading this book although it is a children's book, as it was so well written and recommend it strongly - ideal Godchild presant.
