MB (What she read)
My 1964 edition has lovely illustrations that so add to the pleasure of reading. I wish I owned her other Bruach books as well. This was one of those 25 cent library book sale books. Such a find!
Kathleen Dixon
I guess the author's plan was to finish writing about Bruach after this book, as she has a definite ending to it. However, there are another three to follow!
This continues as delightful as the previous two, and I have no doubt they will keep on - and the characters are so familiar by now, with a few extras dotted in here and there, that it's like reading about your family.
