I bought this for my daughter, having fond memories of reading it myself as a child. However, I have to admit that coming back to it now and reading it to my daughter I have found it a TEENY bit boring. I agree with the other reviewer that it is evocative of another era, which is rather lovely, but it just didn't grab me second time around and my daughter wasn't too keen either, so that we didn't actually finish the book.Read moreLess

Real nostalgia. Have enjoyed reading these stories to my daughter as much (if not more) than I enjoyed reading them myself. Very gentle, feel-good stories evocative of a simpler age. Am envious of Milly Molly Mandy's childhood and the delight in spending a penny, making a tea-cosy and having a picnic.
