Joni-Pip is as light as Harry Potter is dark

by cedmarlowe@persian.force9.co.uk on 2/19/2008

I was recommended this book by an avid Carrie King fan, so I was sceptical of his ravings at first. As I promised him I would, I began reading and she hooked me from the first page. Her writing is different from most contemporary authors, this book kind of reminds me of a grown up A.A. Milne/Mark Twain/Kenneth Grahame/Enid Blyton.... The Life in the Wood with Joni-Pip is different from anything else I have read recently, it deals with so many topics: an Anglo-American family living in England during the Second World War: friendships: death (although all is not sad in that field):coping with living during wartime: sibling relationships: Jumping in Time (JITTING): I love how CK tackles Time Travel, she actually goes out to change the Past, in order to make a better Future, sometimes with disasterous consequences. Joni-Pip starts off leisurely and then the pace crescendoes until you can't put it down. I think I was so keen to find out The Secret of the Stars that I rushed the ending and I need to re-read it, not missing any word, this time! An excellent read for everyone! Move over Harry Potter and your magnificent reign, make room for Joni-Pip!
