really liked it
Read in April, 2011

Delving into the children's books that I loved as a kid but are no longer in print, I started with this, a book I read repeatedly when I was younger. This book makes me hope that digital book platforms will finally stop books from going out of print, because it's a real shame that this book isn't read anymore. A story about four children who have to suddenly go to live with their crazy great aunt in a rundown house in Ireland and learn to take care of themselves, this book thoroughly dispels the idea that you have to have something magical or supernatural in a kids' book to make it a good, exciting read. The world is a fascinating place, full of experiences that are at least as interesting as anything Harry Potter might do, and it's really too bad that authors have forgotten that.
