The Moondial by Helen Cresswell,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Moondial (Puffin Books) (Paperback)
I have just been reading this book to a young girl who I look after and she loves it. It's classic story telling of the adventures of a little girl called Minty who discovers a moondial in the grounds of a large Mannor house near to her Aunt's cottage. It's a mystical tale of time travel and secret discoveries within the magic of the dial as she encounters two lost children from a bygone age. It's so lovely sometimes, to re read these aged novels and rediscover their haunting tales and old fashioned charm...takes you back to your youth of escapisim and fantasy and into another world which is why we all love to read afterall...isn't it?
