Written in the last few years of the 19th century, as Grahame looked back fondly at his own childhood, these sketches of growing up are poised artfully between two states of consciousness — that of a child protagonist and that of a remembering adult — and so manage to evoke both the active energies of youth and the nostalgic tenderness of reflection. This book, and a companion volume entitled Dream Days, remain beguiling today.

While their language is sophisticated, confident reader of ten and up might easily find themselves caught in the web of story the author weaves- older readers have no excuse not to revel in these marvelous volumes.
