This heart-warming collection of stories will stoke nostalgia for holidays from bygone years with tales of crime-solving adventures, unlikely friendships and fun-filled afternoons spent berry-picking, fly-fishing and decamped to the homes of doting grandparents . . . will appeal to readers of all ages * The 20 Best Beach and Holiday Reads, HERALD *
These 14 stories, which were written between the 30s and 70s, were recently found buried among Streatfeild's papers. As one might guess from their dreamily nostalgic titles ("Chicken for Supper", "Let's Go Coaching"), there are few pantomime twists or cliffhanger endings. Instead, their charm lies in their evocation of the small, everyday dramas of childhood . . . Such rewarding reading. * 'Best Children's Books' DAILY TELEGRAPH *
