Nary model The ship takes Peter and the other children on magical flights wherever they ask to go Time after. I don t even know couldn t guess how many times I took this book out of the library when I was a kid It went home with me over and over and over again It s actually a little disturbing to me to hold it in a brand new paperback instead of in the worn library bound hardcover that I cherished as a child but I m thrilled that it s back in printI grew up waiting for magic on every corner My favourites were this lovely little book from Hilda Lewis ANYTHING by E Nesbit and of course all of Edgar Eager booksNow it s time past time to share this treasure with my girls I bought it for Caroline for Christmas in 2010 but she hadn t read it yet so here it is for us in British History I can t wait to read about the Normans with the girls after covering that part of history this week I think they ll have a richer appreciation of the story than I ever didIt s an absolute joy to share these childhood treasures with my girls
