A lovely book for children especially those living in the country,
This review is from: The Old Man of Lochnagar (Picture Puffin) (Paperback)
I thought this book was funny and imaginative. There are many references to country pursuits which interested my children, there are plenty of jokes, many puns on words and phrases that I appreciated but had to explain to my children before they understood what was funny along the lines of he held his head in his hands then he held it in his feet. The plot is complicated but very interesting if a little rambling at times. On the whole a nice gift for a child of ten and under.
