Fantastic Childhood Memories
on 14 June 2003
I recently came across this book on Amazon when I was searching for something else. This was the first book I ever managed to read independently - it'll be my silver anniversary of first reading it! The illustration and tales are absolutely enchanting. I used to twist my dad's arm to read it to me when I was too tired to read it for myself - I think I probably also used to pretend to be one of the mice.... (I was only five!).
Each story is different - they all transport you to somewhere magical and this, surely, is the purpose of any children's story. It's a simple book, and not very sophisticated, but it is one that childen will remember.
This is an excellent book to buy any children who are learning to read - and will give them a lifelong interest in looking at the shape of clouds!
