This was a stocking filler for my husband who was born in 1942. We have both enjoyed reading it together and reminiscing about our childhoods.

The actual recipient is having this for Christmas, but it has been carefully read by myself and jogs the memory of so many situations in my childhood. Lovely. Print could be a little larger and darker given those likely to read it probably have weaker eyesight now!
