    " "Don't you think it's rather nice to think that we're in a book that God's writing? If I were writing a book, I might make mistakes. But God knows how to make the story end just right---in a way that's best for us." Mother to Peter p192 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ahnaf | 1/20/2014

    " I have read this story 8 times already at never gets old. Whenever I want o take a break from chapter books this the one i always turn to. The story is so pure that the fiction in the story hides in the realisticness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindy | 12/7/2013

    " This is a sweet story of a family that pulls through hard times. I felt like the children had a Pollyanna feel to them, meaning that everywhere they went they spread happiness through their innocent and natural goodness. I really enjoyed this one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angharad John | 1/10/2013

    " A brilliant and feel good tale about the Three Chimney Children. Whilst the plot is not overly complicated and at times, a little predictable, I simply could not put this book down. "

    " This was very cute and a fun classic read that I hadn't ever picked up before. It is set in England and originally published in the early 1900s so some of the customs and expressions were a challenge to understand but entertaining at the same time. "
