Beautiful books to give and to treasure
Top customer reviews
Language is sometimes a little dated and needs translating but this does not detract from the beautiful descriptions of the world as seen from 4 inches high. The Jeanie Deans, a toy boat the gnomes commandeer, is described in such an exciting way that I dreamt for years of owning such a boat.
In summary, a must have for imaginitive children.
Since, I have read it to my son (who keeps a copy in his bathroom!!) to this day and last night I began reading it to his daughter whose eyes were like saucers.
This is an absolutely timeless tale. Unlike so many modern books, it teaches as well as entertains. Every page is packed with information about British flora and fauna - indeed, the elves' names are all flowers: Dodder, Sneezewort and Baldmoney.
Its a classic adventure tale of good against bad and the overcoming of insuperable odds to win through in the end.
I cannot recommend it highly enough - if I could give it more than 5 stars I surely would.
While it could be frightening in places for very small children, children from 5 - 95 are sure to love every page.
