There, across the road, it looked like any hill--nothing but sand and rocks, some old wooden boxes, and thorny plants--but to the children who played there, it was a special place.

The characters are real and amusingly consistent with themselves. Took me back in time. (I know exactly who our "Marian" was, too.) The children and their imaginative play are so true to life, so like my own childhood, I could hardly get done reading and rereading it and showing it to everyone who would hold still long enough.
How did Ms McLerran do it? And Barbara Cooney's illustrations, as always, carry the story, and capture the heart, as if the words and pictures are one thing.
One of the most captivating children's books I have ever happened across.
I got this book from the library b/c my daughter is going to have to read it next year in third grade. It is somewhat interesting; based on true story. It is better than some of the non-fiction type books she had to read in second grade.
