Reviews

An enchanting collection, full of wonderful old friends, (the Bell family, the Fossils' darling Doctors Smith and Jakes, Harriet and Lalla!) Classic Noel Streatfeild at her warm-hearted best. I absolutely loved it
Hilary McKay, author of THE SKYLARKS' WAR
These 14 stories, which were written between the 30s and 70s, were recently found buried among Streatfeild's papers. As one might guess from their dreamily nostalgic titles ("Chicken for Supper", "Let's Go Coaching"), there are few pantomime twists or cliffhanger endings. Instead, their charm lies in their evocation of the small, everyday dramas of childhood . . . Such rewarding reading.
'Best Children's Books' DAILY TELEGRAPH
This heart-warming collection of stories will stoke nostalgia for holidays from bygone years with tales of crime-solving adventures, unlikely friendships and fun-filled afternoons spent berry-picking, fly-fishing and decamped to the homes of doting grandparents . . . will appeal to readers of all ages
