Praise For…


The timeless story will delight yet another generation of children.



This is pure escapism and it is refreshing to find a book of such quality surviving and succeeding through generations of readers but still being published today amongst the buzz and fizz of novelty books



These books have really come back to life for children today. Rightly so.
