Some adults will regret this approach and the passing of the dark Tenniel drawings but this is a perfect introduction to the story for younger readers and while Oxenbury's fresh as a daisy illustrations make the story completely accessible they certainly don't Disneyfy it in any way. The staircase went up from the hall, and at the first landing branched off into two smaller staircases, the one to the left leading to my mother's apartments, a bedroom and dressing-room fronting the lawn, with a wide landing-place and window between the two rooms; the one to the right, through an arched door-way into a long corridor, with bedrooms on each side and a back staircase at the end. I only know one person who grew up on a farm. When his family arrived, a spacious, airy room on the second floor was given up to the nurse and the baby, then only seven months old. She was going down-stairs to join him and bring him in to tea, when she paused, hearing a confused murmur of voices in the hall below. And when the sponge needed cleaning, a simple soak in salt water was recommended.

A deadly fear, for which she could not account, seized her, but recovering she went down, to find a group of men from the village, many of whose faces she knew by sight, bringing in on a shutter the dead body of her father. Connor also had advice for used panty hose. But while village life has changed out of all recognition, the emotions of Lizzie, who wants something exciting to happen in her life, who loves her soft dad and rather severe mum but keeps getting into scrapes and who meets a witch in the way other people run into the milkman, remain as fresh as a daisy. The staircase went up from the hall, and at the first landing branched off into two smaller staircases, the one to the left leading to my mother's apartments, a bedroom and dressing-room fronting the lawn, with a wide landing-place and window between the two rooms; the one to the right, through an arched door-way into a long corridor, with bedrooms on each side and a back staircase at the end. Wild and wonderful.

There are other children living there, children who were happy there many centuries before. Wild and wonderful. Contrary to her usual custom the nurse, seeing the lady so fast asleep, had left the room to get something necessary for the night. Worth a hundred history lessons, Cooper's novel combines thriller-like suspense with a story of theatrical and personal transformations. When Cassie is sent without warning from her nan's to live with her feckless, beautiful mother she becomes easy prey until she finds a way of protecting herself.
