STAR RATINGS GUIDE
An Understated Gem With A Dr Who Vibe
🧡 An alien presence in a child’s mind could be a horror story or a sinister tale, but John Wyndham makes it oddly charming. Go into this with an open mind and enjoy the very British underreaction to the whole fandango.
💚 Oh, and this was first published in 1968. So a heads up for some outdated notions in what is, for its time, a very progressive book.
💜 There’s a real Dr Who feel to this, what with the nonchalant treatment of the extraordinary and the jovial tone.
