5.0 out of 5 stars So okay Noggin, 15 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have a soul and you really want to lose yourself in whimsical tales from the northlands and luxuriate in one of "those voices", indulge in myriad characters and listen again to those musical themes then treat yourself. If of course you have no soul and are blind to the positivity of fantasy then forget it.

BTW Oliver Postgate's autobiography (Seeing Things) is more than just a treat. It is full of tales from north London, the west country and more besides. The only grouse I have is that Noggin gets little more than a nod BUT there is so much more to Postgate than Noggin.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Just Is, 31 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Really (Audio CD)
Bought as a Christmas present, this old treasure from the past is the epitomy of seasonal peace. If more people listened to JJ Cale there would be many more smiles and far less strife.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coming from a Different Angle, 16 Jan. 2006
I am not a horticulturist and had the book bought for me as a Christmas present from a brother. I am however from the Crystal Palace area, my parents saw the Palace fire from their home and I am a fan of the football team (stamped on my forehead at birth!).
The book is a delight and is an excellent insight to the Victorian era and most particularly the Victorian entrenpreneurs as in essence that is exactly what Paxton was with his publishing, public park design company, financial investments into new fangled railway lines, and his self promotion.
Further the details on Chatsworth and his relationship with the Duke of Devonshire were both detailed and again of great interest regarding the Victorian psyche of master and servant (and also how each treated thier womenfolk!). It is interesting to note Paxton had a son who went off the rails with debauchery and drink (plus ca change!).
Highly commended to horticultursts and those interested in social history and most importantly to those who just like a good read.
