    I read this after I loved David and the Phoenix. I didn't enjoy this as much, but there are things I liked better. This had more of a cohesive plot. And even though the "twist ending" would be obvious from anyone older than ten, the characters and realism (he really knows human nature) made it feel real.

    I hate it when a reviewer begins with 'I wanted to like this book'. Presumably, one starts every book wanting to like it otherwise why would one read it? But alas, I must say it. I wanted to like this book. I like Ormondroyd's writing, I like his adult characters (the children in this one are tiresome), I liked the setting. In fact, I liked the setting very much. The problem lay in the obviousness of what was going on. Not obvious to the characters - of course not - but obvious to a reader with any brains at all. Reading it felt like an exercise in getting through to the end when the penny drops - almost as an afterthought - and all is made plain. By then I was half asleep.

    Eddie has a perculiarly lucid way of depicting the mannerism of kids...in this story, the characters are nicely carved out, the idyllic is tasteful- quaint and quite captivating.
