Part of a magical series loved by readers for generations, Beverley Nichols’s gentle fantasy adventure will entrance and entertain today’s children just as it did their parents and grandparents. Judy and her granny live in an enchanted wood and run a little shop from the boughs of an old willow. Their happiness is threatened by the arrival in the woods of a pair of rivals, as ruthless, cruel and greedy as you’ll find. When these interlopers team up with a witch and her chorus of beastly toads, things for all the creatures in the wood look very bad. But, as in all the best fairy tales, good triumphs over evil. Written in 1945 there’s a subtle emphasis on the importance of kindliness, peace and forgiveness, still an important message to share with children. ~ Andrea Reece
