To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It is hard to pick a favorite story from this collection. They are quite charming. Aimed squarely at the Edwardian child these unique tales capture the imagination and are filled with fun asides for the attentive adult. Somewhat reminiscent of George MacDonald but more jovial.
Enjoyable bedtime fare, with a sometimes cumbersome vocabulary and the cultural gaps resulting from a lapse of a hundred years.
My ten year old daughter loved reading this book out loud to the family on road trips and it remains a favorite.
Contains super stories, there's no doubt and it's great to have them all together in one book, but I was disappointed by the presentation - page after page of 'block' aligned writing and not a picture anywhere to be seen. Fine for parents to read aloud, but less inspiring if, like me, you want it for your children to read to themselves.
