I remember Rumer Godden's books from my childhood, although I hadn't read this one. The language and setting is naturally dated, but the theme - self confidence - is universal and my 6 year-old daughter and 4 year-old son really enjoyed it (they were impressed a six year old could go to the shops on her own!) and identified with Elizabeth learning to ride her bike. For a while 'Ting!' became a household phrase. This story has a Christmassy feel, although the action takes place throughout the year, and magic and reality are neatly blended. Rumer Godden has written some great books for kids and I am sorry that most of them seem to be currently out of print.

This is a lovely heartwarming message about the power of imagination. Does the Fairy Doll exist? Or is she a product of imagination, or is magic the same thing as imagination? I think this story is something of a parable for everyone about having self belief and how a little imagination can achieve anything.
