When I was teaching in primary schools in the late '70s and '80s this was our class reader - in four different schools, purchase of a class set arranged by me. It is an incredibly sensitive book with - despite anyone saying otherwise - has a happy ending. i was rather wet then and could never read the last chapter without being close to tears, so I used to get the kids to read that one! Incidentally, 'Minnow on the Say' is great, too.
