Farjeon was pleased when The Little Bookroom won the prestigious Hans .

Farjeon was pleased when The Little Bookroom won the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award and the Carnegie Medal, but she turned down another honor-Dame of the British Empire-explaining that she did not wish to become different from the milkman. At her death, the Children’s Book Circle established the Eleanor Farjeon Award in her honor. Rumer Godden (1907–1998) grew up in India, where her father ran a steamship company. Edward Ardizzone (1900-1979) was born in French Indochina (now Vietnam) and moved to England when he was five years old.

Only 3 left in stock (more on the way). Eleanor Farjeon (1881-1965) grew up in England in a house filled with books, and she and her brothers enjoyed reading stories to one another and writing their own. In America, Farjeon’s best-known work may be the hymn Morning Has Broken, later recorded by Cat Stevens, but in her native country she is beloved as the author of Elsie Piddock Skips in her Sleep, Martin Pippin in the Apple Orchard, and, of course, The Little Bookroom.

  • Like all the others who wrote in to praise this book, I must say it is among my absolute favorites. I, too, read it in early childhood, and even the stories I didn't fully understand stayed with me, gaining in resonance as I reread them over the years. My own children loved them as much as I did, and I have made it a point to find copies of this book whenever possible and to give them out to children of my acquaintance. They have so much to say about the human condition, and what makes life worth living. They are filled with delight and humor but also sorrow, grief, and compassion. The stories seem deceptively simple, but they are not. Whatever age you are, please read this book, and give it out to people you love. I was really pleased when the book was reissued.

  • I've had this book for over 60 years, and I still adore it. Whenever the world is "too much with me," I pull it out and read a couple stories. Recently I bought a copy for a British friend who was having some stressful times, and she too found it soothing and fascinating. I also love Ardizzone's illustrations, as well as Farjeon's "Introduction." (Incidentally, she also wrote the song made famous by Cat Stevens, "Morning Has Broken.")

  • The child who gets the chance to read this book is lucky indeed, because they will be touched by magic. The story about the goldfish who fell in love with the moon was in one of my elementary school readers in the '60s, but I did not learn where it came from until I was about 12, when I discovered an original copy of this book from the '50s in my school library. I especially loved the stories of the Clumber Pup (I have learned there really is such a dog breed)and the boy who planted a kernel of corn from the pyramid. I got goosebumps when I first read "San Fairy Ann", and every time I re-read it the goosebumps come back. Eleanor Farjeon is the only author who has really captured for me the magic of time passing, and generations passing. I love to think that children are still changed for life by reading this book. I know I was.

  • I am a Japanese woman and since the auther is quite popular here thanks to the great translation of Momoko Ishii, I could read most of her work. Every book has mesmerising charms of poem and fantasy. I bought this book because I wanted to read in original English text. This book is an anthology of varities of short stories from a couple of pages long to dozens.

    My all time favorite is "And I Dance Mine Own Child" which is about a 10 year old girl Griselda who lives with her 110 year old Great-Grandmother in a cottage in the poor lane. She is so diligent hardworking child. The old lady is becoming like a child and Griselda treats her dearly like her own child. Their bed time ritual makes me smile, and Griselda's noble diligence and love for the Gramma makes my eyes teary everytime I read it. Although there arn't any fairies or magic nor dragons in it, this is a pure fairy tale.

    Other stories like romantic "The Clumber Pup", "The Little Dressmaker", "West Woods" are comparably long and are also my favorite. Short ones like "The Seventh Princess" which implies an astonishingly modern idea of woman's independence, "The Grass Peacock" with another noble diligent girl, comic fable "The Tims" are all attructive in different tones.

    Great for story telling performance.

  • I first read this book when I was about 12, having found it in the school library. I must have checked it out dozens of times over the years, but never found a copy for sale anywhere so that I can have my own. Now that I'm all grown up and have a credit card, I was overjoyed to find a copy available on Amazon!

    These stories have more than just the nostalgia value for me, though. They're beautifully written, charmingly illustrated, and evoke a simpler time when the world was full of wonder. Some involve magic and fantastic places, others are simply stories about people living in a world much like ours, but all of them are true works of art.

  • Loved this book in the Japanese translation, 40 years ago! It is wonderful that I am now able to read this in the original language.

  • I must confess that I have not read this book. I bought it for a granddaughter and my opinion is shaped by the enthusiastic response of my son, who is reading it to her, and her.

  • Good reading even for adults. Fantasy, childlike, fairy tales -- all more fun than most books out there. Enjoyment. Don't get it if you don't enjoy fairy tales.
