Such a magical beautiful book that really shaped my entire childhood The remnants of its philosophy have stayed with me for a very long time I remember reading it when I was around Alice's age and having the exact same thoughts and uestions as she did whenever she narrated It's amazing how the author could capture a kid's essence so wellExcerpts of this book come randomly to mind throughout my life but only now did I think that I should somehow let the author know how much this book meant to the children who read it I'm 21 now and very sad to find out that the author died back in 2005 I hope he knew how much indescribable magic this book inspired even now I want to visit an old estate in England just to have adventures like the three siblings did

I suppose the premise of these books is very typical of a children's fantasy series a group of three young siblings go on holiday to a big old house where they get tangled up in things they don't understand to do with magic and saving the world I could almost be describing Susan Cooper's Over Sea Under Stone There's the usual big brother character William in this book Simon in Susan Cooper's books; the spoilsport middle child who ultimately goes along with it and does well anyway Mary in this book and Jane in Susan Cooper's books; the youngest child who is often right but ignored Alice and Barney respectivelyStill the writing is descriptive and interesting without being over descriptive To me now the book seems a little short a little rushed but the story is still interesting and absorbing The portrayal of adult characters and what they do and think interests me a lot Phoebe and Jack's views about marriage and their vegetarianism particularly To me the way the children react to these unorthodox ideas is partly what makes the children than 2D characters There's some lovely characterisation that really does make the characters seem like their own age not miniature adults for example Alice asking if a baby being born is horribly rudeA uick and enjoyable read Poses some uestions and sets things up for the rest of the series
