Joan Aiken is a faboulous writer who has produced mountains of beautifully enchanting stories. This is yet another collection of immaculately crafted tales that cannot fail to capture the imaginations of readers and listeners alike. If you are enticed by these stories you must buy 'A Necklace of Raindrops' too - simply borrowing it from the library is not enough, they're precious stories that you'll want to enjoy again and again for years and years.

I remember this book ,as a child its one that stayed in my heart.It's a book of short stories,the stories dive deep into the imagination,taking you to a whole new place of being with your child.
The great thing too is that there's a moral to every story to help your child,and it might help you along the way too.
The pictures are divine,such beautiful colors,like magical paintings.

get yourself a copy,you will not be disappointed.

Great book... 28 Mar. 2007

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I too read this book in middle school and have been completely in love with the stories and characters ever since. (I feel a little silly that I only just now thought to look on Amazon for a copy for my little sister)I fully recommend this title for anyone who has a youngster that loves fantastical stories.

review 29 July 2010
By erica_b - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
great collection of stories. haven't read them since i was a kid & was stoked to find it. charming without being sappy, funny without being overly clever. the illustrations have the lovely quality and looking both detailed, and therefore interesting, as well as slighty smudgy pencil quality, giving them a little glow-like feel. the condition of the book was not as great as advertised, but there was certainly no damage that took away from the material itself.

A Wonderful Book for Children and Adults Alike 24 Sept. 2000
By Gloria Darlington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I first read this book when I was in the Fourth Grade. I fell in love with its fantastic tales of bizzarre circumstances and extraordinary characters. It has, since then, been one of my favorite books. This book will revive the imaginations of anyone who chooses to read it.

This is one of my all-time favorite books! The stories are magical and uplifting. The illustrations are unique and whimsical. All in all it is a treat for the eyes and the imagination. This book makes a wonderful gift, not just for children, but for artists, poets and dreamers.

This has a lot of great short stories. All fantasy stories. It would be nice to see this released on kindle. My mom read this to me when I was in third grade. I actually liked the stories and didn't get boared.
