AN EDWARDIAN SUMMER by John S.--Illus. Goodall


Email this review


Unlike Paddy Pork, below, or, more comparable, last year's Naughty Nancy, there's not even a hint of a story in these nostalgic (Goodall's word) views of the streets, shops, market, gardens, and festivities visisted by an Upstairs--class boy and girl--who then rush home to dine, and later rush into party clothes for the grand church wedding and lawn reception that brings this to an end--with the guests on a terrace watching an airplane in the distance. A nice touch that, and there are more, but one feels that it only wound up as a picture book for want of an alternative.
