TWIG by Elizabeth rton Lanes


Email this review


Judging by the publisher's advertising campaign this is one of their pets for the season but we feel that the Tregarthen book The Doll Who Came Alive (see page 490) for the same aged girl has far more charm. However there is always room in this group and you will have to judge for yourself. Twig lived on the fourth floor of a ""high sort of a house"" in the city with the back-yard and its occupants as her interest in life. She wished for a fairy to live in a beautiful tomato can when lo and behold along came a little . They received a visit from the Fairy Queen, fixed up the little house, and Twig became minute herself. Enchantment in drab surroundings, as the child found her own fantasy in the world.
