Some brief overview of book

My partner has a collection of vintage Puffins that I am steadily working my way through. I found some by Paul Berna and discovered that I enjoyed the gallic charm of the names and the settings. This is no different in that respect, it is set in the south and resembles one of those frantic Ealing films made after the second world war, with children running about in their imaginary worlds, achieving surprising results and with a little moralising on the way.

I find it hard to believe that a group of young children could sustain the effort or the discipline of what they do in this book, but it doesn't really matter, the writer depicts the children so that we come to like them, even if they are not always so perfect. He has a way of observing the characters which is very convincing- they are real children, even if what they are doing is a little out of the scope of the possible at that age...any age come to that! But, even with that reservation, it is a great yarn, well told, and had me looking forward to when I could find time to read it during my day.

It was a real pleasure.
