I love it so much! I would highly recommend it to any child of 7 and older !
Gentle tale suited to primary age but engaging enough for early teens promoting importance of curiosity, following dreams and treating others with kindness and consideration.
Tally heads off to South Devon boarding school in pre-war 1939 with apprehension only to find inspiring progressive school focused on self guided education (modelled on Dartington?). From there to the fictional kingdom of Bulgania where King Johannes is attempting to stand up to Hitler and to find time to take his 12-yr-old son Carol to Dragonfly Pool of title. Archetypal German baddies and pompous aristocrats are foiled in a series of humorous romps by the intrepid kids. Iva Ibbotson creates some feisty characters and spins an engaging story while promoting the importance of curiosity and kindness.
