I like not only the story but also the illustration.
Mildred is nice. She really encouraged me!
Tabby is cute! It makes for the nice accent.
Read as a child and loved it.
Snape in Harry Potter is very reminiscent of Miss Hardbroom.
Definitely an uncomplicated childrenâ€™s story.
(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s). I feel a lot of readers automatically render any book they enjoy 5, but I grade on a curve!
Unabridged audiobook read by Gemma Arterton:
Arterton is a good reader, who gives energy to her reading of the tale.
2017 television adaptation:
The 2017 adaptation is quite good, with a real emphasis on production design, setting, acting and substantially modified and expanded storyline and story arc.
