This is a very dreamy book, but I don't think most children today would stay with it. Like a dream, events sometimes progress logically and then will veer off on an odd track with no logic. Kay shows patience and tolerance for a very lonely sounding existence, and a rather unsurprising acceptance for animals who talk. The book ends rather abruptly. Still, it is enjoyable and evokes a British child's universe that I suspect never truly existed.
