This wonderful audiobook follows in the great tradition of the E. Nesbit magic books. Since its first publication in 1969 it has proved its appeal to children of every age.
Long out of print until republished by Fidra Books in the UK and Purple House Press in the USA, it received praise from respected children’s authors.
The sequel to this book is called The House Called Hadlows.
