Great bedtime reading ...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Little Darlings (Paperback)
First of all, I should confess that I am a grown-up. I first heard this on BBC Big Toe Books (read brilliantly by Lesley Joseph) and thought it was a great update on the E Nesbit-type children's adventure story. I bought a copy of the book for a young friend of mine - always a risk to buy a loved book for someone else as they might hate it. Anyway, she and her mum are reading it together as a bedtime story and they are both really enjoying it. It's well-written with enough jokes to keep the adult amused and it's a cracking story about some really BAD children.
