In 'The Not-Anywhere House' (the first story in this book), Hannah and her family's move from country village to the city is not one she faces with any enthusiasm: Dungee Farm Cottage has been her home for as long as she can remember and of course Darjeeling is a 'country cat'. Despite her parents' efforts to reassure and encourage her, both before and after moving day, Hannah has to find her own solace in the vast Monterey Pine growing outside her attic bedroom window. The second story tells of Hannah's developing friendship with Jenny and Eliza and how Mrs Middlesome-Merry's Rainbow Watchers become not two but three. Hannah's feelings about moving are sensitively portrayed in a book whose emotional content is strong and whose imaginatively chosen language will draw and hold solo readers from about eight.
