enjoyable light read,
This review is from: Matty and the Dearingroydes (Paperback)
Richmal Crompton is best known for her children's stories, the 'Just William' series in particular. She is a gifted storyteller, and this is true in her books for adults as well. This light amusing tale is of an elderly (60!) relative who spends a month with each of her relations in order to see if she would like to live with them, and vice versa. She was known as 'Meddlesome Matty', and in each household, her meddling ends up making things better.
Whilst I enjoyed the book, my only critisism would be that it became a little repetitive - there is a 'loving tyrant' in each home who has to be overcome. Still, an enjoyable feel-good read.
