    Just started it It's not unlike Elizabeth Enright's 'Melendy Books' Set a little earlier 1930s not 40s but some similar humour and sympathetic well drawn charactersFinished it while on holiday Delightful funny warm and would be a great book to read aloud to older children So refreshing to read a book so unconcerned with the 'wow' factor and a slew of marketing behind it but relies simply on characterisation to keep you reading If you lik
