"An unusual story of grace, thoughtfulness, and wit. James feels utterly displaced when he moves with his parents from the rugged landscape of Yorkshire to the English fen country...Imbuing the narrative with a graphic, insistent sense of place, the author has also woven into it patterns of social custom, human behavior, and childhood feelings, giving the brief novel both sensibility and suspense." --The Horn Book
