When Lucy Mangan was little, stories were everything. They opened up new worlds and cast light on all the complexities she encountered in this one. She was whisked away to Narnia and Kirrin Island and Wonderland. She ventured down rabbit holes and womble burrows into midnight gardens and chocolate factories. She wandered the countryside with Milly-Molly-Mandy and played by the tracks with the Railway Children.

I was delighted, moved and reminded of the best books and the best bits of my childhood. I laughed six different kinds of laugh and three different kinds of cry, including that ugly snivelling cry that can win actors a Bafta. Thank you, wonderful Lucy Mangan for this excellent history of children's literature by way of '80s kid memoir, love story, and recommended reading list.

It's my second time listening to it on Audible, and I will definitely listen again. This is one of the best audiobook performances I've ever heard. That's not how you pronounce Glenmorangie though. :)
