Children of all ages enjoy listening to this magical and beautifully written chapter book. The story shows how one act of kindness can change the course of events. Satchkin Patchkin is a small hero who defends Old Mother Farthing against her mean-spirited landlord. Everyone who reads this book will be wishing for their own neighborhood tree sprite! Helen Morgan's style of writing is joyful and poetic. Each chapter opens with a verse and is sprinkled with repeated phrases that fill small hearts with delight and anticipation. Reading this out-of-print classic, with its masterful pen and ink illustrations, is something my family looks forward to like an annual holiday.
