A wonderful read!
The adventure is all well and good but the real treasure of this book is the small joys like all the superstitions that every young boy knows are FACT!
Unlike a lot of the reviews I didn’t find the book off-putting due to the old style language. I found, rather that it drew me in more and certainly wasn’t too dense to make sense of at any point.
This book is that rarest of things: a must-read, classic piece of literature that is easy to read and so full of joy that you can’t put it down for more than an hour without your fingers itching to get back to turning the pages again!
