Reader's Reviews


This is a really simple story, matter-of-fact and fantastic at the same time, without having any obvious moral to the tale. The illustrations are fun for us parents, because they depict an ordinary family in a suburban kitchen in the 1960s, which reminds you how different things looked then!
