enjoyed the children s gradual changes in outlook and motivation, an During the summer I was eight, I chose this for the plane ride to my grandparents And even though we went to the library at least twice a week, I read it over and over again Not only does Streatfeild give the perfect shout out to The Secret Garden, she brings back the Fossils I still get excited when Rachel has lunch with Posy and Pauline.Aunt Cora is one of my favorite Streatfeild characters She s so selfish and whiny, and her type doesn t really appear in any of the other Shoes books I d During the summer I was eight, I
