Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Brave Young Heroine On one of her solitary walks outside of St Martin’s Orphanage, ten-year-old Mandy stumbles upon a small abandoned cottage on a neighbouring estate. Mandy adopts the cottage, takes care of it, and is soon storing tea other “borrowed” items in its cupboards. Her desire for a home is so fierce she finds herself lying to keep her cottage a secret. At such times, Mandy is not the best of role models, but she is desperate for a place of her own, and her selfishness, while frowned upon by the adult characters, is easily justified by sympathetic readers. Julie Andrews Edwards, whose turn as Mary Poppins is a timeless delight to children, brings us this charming tale, complete with delightful pen-and-ink illustrations by Judith Gwyn Brown.
