Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This beautifully written and illustrated book provided just the reassurance and interest needed when my 4 year old grandaughter was moving house.She readily identified with Molly and began to understand the whole process of packing up ,filling the van,unloading,unpacking and exploring her new surroundings.Her only disappointment is that there are no cats in the neighbouring garden and it is not a wilderness but a manicured plot.

I remember this book from when i was little and it was especially useful for when we moved house and now that im a trainee teacher ive decided to add this to my collection to show in school.
The book has a fantastic magical element to it and having a look in someone elses garden always interested me but with this book you get the feel for being nosey without having moved out of your chair!!! All children will love this book and it has something for everyone even adults to relate to.

It's is another Shirley Hughes classic and a great story to reassure small people when they move house. Seem things are good about moving some not, with her typical honest approach everything works out fine in the end. Would recommend all her books. Beautiful illustrations as ever

This was a favourite of mine as a child so I bought it for my kids. They love the detailed photos and the idea of so much space and freedom to play. Idealistic and nostalgic, yes, but in good reassuring ways which has meant this has become a popular bedtime story.

I had this book when I was little and so when we decided to move house I couldn't resist tracking it down and buying for my little girl. Like with most of my beloved Shirley Hughes books I had as a child, the story is perhaps a tad old fashioned now, but still just as charming, about a family moving house and all the new things there are for Molly to explore in her new surroundings. A firm favorite at bedtime :-)

I bought this book for two reasons: we're moving and our daughter's called Molly! She's 2.5 and is interested and aware of what's going on with the move, but I wanted to get her a book so we could read about moving house as well. She likes the pictures in the book and often points out things that aren't mentioned in the story but that interest her.

Not many books on the subject of moving. This book allows young children to discuss their feelings on the subject of moving. It can be quite a traumatic time for children. Great bargain that arrived very quickly!
