    4. I still have the original copy I got as a Christmas gift when I was 9 years old in 1973 I re read it every couple years and read it to my 8 year old as well It is a wonderfully enchanting story Not sure why, but I have never read any of the authors other books I loved the setting and the imagination that it inspired in me As a child, I wished I could be Arabella and when I re read it, I remember why I felt this way and wish it all over again

    7. Not much of a story or plot, you know those cool summer days down by the lake you always hear about Where not much may be going on, but it s still very enjoyable This book is basically that experience in literary form, a quite, nothing going on, but still enjoyable kind of thing.
