The Lovereading4Kids comment
This award-winning book is an outstanding collection of stories to inspire dreams and wonder. Eleanor Farjeon has put together an elegant collection of diverse stories that capture mystery and surprise from around the world and moments of homely magic too. The collection is ideal for reading aloud to all age groups.
The Little Bookroom by Eleanor Farjeon, Edward Ardizzone
A girl sits in a dusty room, crammed to the rafters with books. Sunlight dances on the covers, between which are stories of magical worlds and faraway places, lands of princesses, kings, giants, and real children too. Eleanor Farjeon was that girl, who was so enchanted by her little bookroom that she recreated it by writing this wonderful collection of short stories. This charming book, first published in 1955, was the winner of the prestigious Carnegie Medal and is beautifully illustrated throughout by Edward Ardizzone, whose exquisite pictures immediately bring to mind the magical atmosphere of the stories.
