"A masterpiece...a copybook lesson in those virtues that a classic children's book must possess."--Time.
Lewis Carroll Shelf Award.
I suggest that an adult read yhe book to the children..
Instead, it's an interesting story that contains just enough danger to make the plot interesting without scaring younger kid readers too much.
When I first read this book I was ten or eleven...I recommended it to my then best friend, and she too loved it.
Yeah! I love this book because it has adventure and excitement and it keeps you in suspense and it gives you a sense of England back then.Published 2 days ago by Amazon Customer
Still holds up after all these years. I read it as a child and coming back as an adult, it still has magic and great charm.Published 1 month ago by D. Dubov
It was really exciting and very interesting. It was very good story line. My favorite character was simon the homeless boy who has a lot of geese. My mum read it loud to me.Published 5 months ago by Matthew (age 8, Cayman Islands)

Great, great book but don't buy this library binding edition. What arrived was a paperback with those thin beige pages and a hardcover slapped on. Read morePublished 10 months ago by C. Scott Peterson
