Full of anecdotes, it is neither overly sentimental nor dreamily nostalgic, but an evocation of country life and a child’s relationship with both adults and nature. Subjects such as education, religion, animals, snow, sea, sunshine, family, monsters, bitter cold, biting sea breezes, and indecision are covered. This book provides a child’s view of the world—a child who despises adult advice, is sensitive to nature, and is still green.
