I somehow managed to miss reading this book as a child. I'm very glad I finally discovered it. It is an enchanting and enduring story of youth. It tells of every child's desire (at some point) to disappear to a different world from the one they must live in. This is high on my list of books to read to my children, however, it is definitely worth reading no matter what your age.
