"Julian Fane's book extends over the two years 1938 and 1939, when the writer was seven and eight, and thus covers the delicate transition between childhood and boyhood, between nursery and school. The child remains at the centre of the picture: it is through his eyes that we come to know the gradually extending circles of his experience. The central theme is the mutability of a child's emotions, his rapid variation of mood from ecstasy to despair, from love to hatred, from pride to guilt, from recklessness to timidity, fro confidence to dread. In one aspect this book is a useful Parents' Companion. It may convince young fathers that they should be less obtuse and shy. But it is more than that. It is the work of a literary artist, beautifully written, coloured and composed." - Harold Nicolson in the "Observer".
