Reviews

  • "Noel Streatfeild has that happy, skillful knack of turning her characters into real people – something which only really good novelists can do. A first-rate book"

    BBC Children’s Hour
  • "Noel Streatfeild’s position in the children’s book world is unique. She is endlessly inventive, full of verve and real understanding of the surfaces of childhood. Her stories are rich in documentary interest and entertainment, escapism of a most satisfying sort"
