My aunt bought me this book in 1956, when I was 10. It was always one of my great favourites. It's a lovely book. I've never forgotten it. I think Eve Garnett won the Carnegie Prize with it in about 1947. If you've got a child who loves reading, do buy them this book. I've just found it while browsing through Amazon, and I'm going to buy myself a new copy of it and read it again.
