Brian and Faith Addis sell their flower shop in Bloomsbury and move to a roomy farmhouse in Devon. From here they offer 'memorable holidays for the child who loves the outdoor life'. The cheerful brochure goes on to promise Shetland ponies, piglets, and goats, all of which materialise along with many strays and new births, keeping the children busy thinking up names. Although sometimes things go wrong - the spectacular summer drought that puts paid to Brian's dream of self-sufficiency - most things go right and the children have a glorious time. 'Snowball' fights with farmyard dung, mackerel fishing in Lyme Regis, tea parties in the rabbit run: no wonder that the children are loath to leave. In 'The Year of the Cornflake' with all its animals, outings and upsets, Faith Addis shows that she is a nautural storyteller with an infectious sense of humour and wonderful ear for the vividness of children's speech. "This book is the perfect antidote for a rainy day, a bout of flu or a pile of bills. Any tears en route will be tears of laughter." - Eastern Daily Press.… (more)
