I have read this collection of stories many times. The t.v.series was good but not a patch on the books. Whenever I need cheering up I reach for this book as every line makes me smile. I was born in the early 50s in a completely different part of the world from that occupied by the Larkins but so many things in my childhood are echoed in these stories. I know some people say it's all too good to be true but for many people, life really was like that - earthy,loving and happy
