Product Details

Praise

“No one can tell stories like Eleanor Farjeon, and these do not disappoint…the book culminates in a satisfying final chapter that sees Derry surprising Jim with the perfect eightieth-birthday present. Imagination, adventure, and a host of animal encounters, humor, suspense, not to mention Ardizzone’s scene-setting pen-and-ink vignette illustrations—this little book, first published in 1934, has oceans of appeal.” —Martha V. Parravano, The Horn Book Magazine

“Like the award-winning The Little Bookroom, Eleanor Farjeon’s Jim at the Corner is a collection of loosely related stories, perfect for reading aloud. This is a good book for grandfathers—in fact for any relatives of youngsters whose constant plea is, “Tell us a story.”. . . Jim is an old-fashioned character with a repertoire of gentle humorous fantasies, and youngsters are likely to be back as regularly as Derry for more of these tales of magic islands in the fog and of rooks with a taste for Little Boy Pie.”
The New York Times

“It is certain that when the history of children’s literature in our day is written Eleanor Farjeon will be one of its most important figures.” —Eileen H. Colwell

“[An] endearing tale by two celebrated collaborators.” —Publishers Weekly
