5.0 out of 5 stars a great childrens' classic 15 Dec 2003
This charming book for children was written fifteen years or so after "Martin Pippin in the Apple Orchard." Anyone who loved that will be equally delighted to read this sequel. It follows the same structure as before:- a series of fairy stories told by Martin but this time to the children of the six pretty milkmaids who were the heroines of the earlier book.The stories themselves are all original and often touching. One of them :- "Elsie Piddock skips in her Sleep" is often printed in its own right. Indeed I came across a French translation of it, in a Provençal market a few weeks ago. It brought back happy childhood memories of one of my favourite books which prompted me to write this review. I have never understood why the "Martin Pippin" books are not better known.They seem to me to be in a class with "Wind in the Willows" or even , dare I say it? "Alice in Wonderland" Unspoilt by time passing, they belong to the realm of innocence in which "the way of a man with a maid" is still cause for joy, and the world of fantasy seems entirely possible :- All this around a simple situation of six little girls trying to avoid being sent to bed on a summer evening in Sussexin England. If , like me, you happen to come from Sussex, it is an added bonus.It is not an easy book to find. It took me two years of nostalgic searching before I finally found a copy in Australia, but it was worth waiting.
