really liked it
bookshelves: britain, c20th
Read in January, 1963

This enchanting little book was on my mothers' shelves and I read it when I was in primary school.

Daisy Ashford's precocious powers of observation trained me to enjoy Jane Austen and Dickens and the Brontes, while her anarchic spelling prepared me for coping with Shakespeare.

I suppose today's young readers of Dolly and Who Weekly would think it was twee...that's their loss!
