There is disaster and Petunia has enough sense to realise that she has not gained any knowledge from simply carrying a book around but must read what is within the pages.
An appealing and quirky book. Also try out Petunia's Christmas. Very good child appealing parables.
"Petunia" is a pleaser but gets a little too philosophical in the last two pages. That's okay-- the first pages and clean 1950s illustrations make up for it. A classic.
"That was a good book!"
Then she held it to her chest and smiled. Any book that causes this reaction in a 6 year old is highly recommended in my opinion.
IF you haven't read it.. you should. Then let it take over your live with all the "moral to the stories" for each season of your life.
This is the gift that I can't wait to give this year. :-)
