Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When this book popped up I was looking for a suitable book for holiday reading. Although the publisher's description put it on the edge of books that I would choose I'm glad that I did.
It is a splendid read, and one that can be read for an hour, put down and picked up a day or two later without having to go back and remind yourself of details that you have forgotten and without which you lose the plot.
The whole book from the cover illustration inwards is warm and joyful. There's ups and downs that bring the book to life and that happy sad feeling at the end when you wish it just went on.
