Wikipedia says: Tom's Midnight Garden is a children's novel by Philippa Pearce. It is considered a masterpiece of English children's literature, and won the Carnegie Medal in 1958.
I read it to my 6 year old daughter recently and she was enthralled. She was very intrigued by the notion of travelling in time and asked a lot of questions about this. Tho' the language can be a little archaic this is a beautifully written book ideal for reading aloud or for an older child to read to themsleves.Read moreLess

By the end you feel as though you ARE Tom. Would recommend for independent readers aged 8+ due to some tricky words, or for reading aloud to children aged 6+Read moreLess
