I know the great Miss Read book. If you read her books before you know what I mean. Life in a small English Village with all the characters and sweetness that one could ever want. If this is your first Miss Read book, it won't be your last. As many of the other commenters will say the editing for the Kindle editions are not that great in that they have misspellings. Then I had to get five but they are a little annoying. For someone like Miss Reed who has a series of books that are very popular Amazon would be very wise to put the money and effort into reediting them and perhaps packaging them into a combination purchase So you could buy the whole set in one fell swoop.

Mildly interesting as a portrait of life during this period, and Saint certainly nails the children's behavior, but it wasn't something I had trouble putting down or couldn't wait to pick up again. If I had to describe the stories in just one word, I would have to select "precious" - and a little preciousness goes a LONG way. It didn't help that Saint seems to have written for a British audience, and as an American I have no idea what (for example) conkers are.
