Great characters still appeal to today's children,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Family from One End Street: And Some of Their Adventures (Puffin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
I loved this book as a child, and recently bought it for a little girl of 8 who loves reading. Although she has no idea what pre-decimal money is and other little mysteries in the book, the characters are so real that she related easily to the beautifully drawn characters (Lily Rose and the disaster of the artificial silk petticoat!) and thoroughly enjoyed it. A real classic with universal appeal.
