bookshelves: new-children-s, 3-4-star-childrens-fiction
Recommended for: people familiar with Dickens. Not sure kids will go for it.
Read in March, 2012

I am actually motivated to reread Great Expectations after this. (Was it nearly as good as this little book? Couldn't be!) Some BEAUTIFUL writing here, and some intriguing artwork...I was kinda expecting Mary Poppins and Bert to pop out of the chimneys and cobblestones.

Sadly, I don't think kids will really go for it.
