I've read The Julian Stories with dozens of classes, and I've rarely found writing which catches so well the essence of childhood imagining and story making, based in a homely, loving setting. If anything, this group is more poignant, inviting. The author's gift is in spinning fantastic tales from potentially ordinary beginnings. Listen how she depicts the slowness of childhood time: 'We didn't know what to do. We were watching the grass grow. It didn't grow fast.' 'The Box', in this collection, is a miniature masterpiece. The pictures are magical. Not to be missed.
