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.

This book wrapped me in memories of my own favourite childhood reading. I have many overlaps with Lucy Mangan and many separate discoveries - but the sheer delight in reading was a joy. Thoroughly enjoyed this and will listen to it again.
