I didn't own a copy of this book when I was a child, but I remember having it read to me in the public library. There's a haunting quality to it which has never left me. For me, this remains one of many imagination-stirring fascinations from childhood that we all have.

I bought a copy for my daughter, and although she is too young for it at six months, I do enjoy reading it to her and she likes looking at the pictures. And the pictures in this book really are lovely. They're the sort of illustrations that children often love - lots to look at, with all sorts of curious details in each one that will take time to spot and discuss. There's a slightly creepy element to the pictures which I like.

The story has a Christian message but it's not over-done. I'm an atheist, but find the religious aspect pleasant. However, it may not be for everyone. I remember when I was little knowing the story had something to do with Jesus, but it is written with a bit of mystery and I didn't quite grasp the concept back then.

Lovely illustrations of this gentle story. These were bought as presentation copies for primary schools.. I hope many children will love the story over the years. Let's hope children keep reading.
