What a delight to find Miss Read has made her way to kindle. I am very happy that the original drawings from the paper books are included in the kindle versions - they add to the charm and humour of these gentle stories. Not all e-books do this - I'm thinking particularly of the Lillian Beckwith Hebridean books, so much is lost without the drawings. I love the Village School series as it reminds me of how life used to be in reality as opposed to how life at this time, (1950s), is depicted in modern books and television programs which tend towards either grimness or syrupy sweetness. In the Miss Read books there is the peace and beauty of the countryside side by side with the frustration of lack of amenities and public transport; the joy of good neighbours alongside the irritations of living in a small community. I have read and re-read this over the years and will do so again.

I am a big fan of the Miss Read books and summer at Fairacre is no exception. These books are a lovely gentle read, full of humour and a love of the countryside.

I love all the Miss Read books and wish I had found them all before I have now read most of them, all of Fairacre's and most of Thrush Green.

Enjoyed this book very much. The book came on time and in good condition. Again Miss Read gives a fascinating account of village life.

Excellent series as are all Miss Read series. A way of life I remember only too well in my childhood and the whole is well penned describing life just, as indeed, it was. One cared about the characters and it's good to know that when the last page of the last book was turned over, all the characters were not gone but simply within the covers of those books to open again whenever one wanted.

Another wonderful story from Miss Read - I know she is now in her nineties but PLEASE collaborate again to produce some more volumes of your beautiful books. I am collecting all the volumes but there just aren't enough.
