A marvelous adventure happens when Paul and Emma go to visit their grandmother when their mother has a new baby. Although some of the late Streatfeild is a bit lacking, this one isn't. Additionally, I don't always find the ones she wrote for very young children to be as well-crafted as the young adult ones, but again, this one is an exception. The adventure is both delightful and plausible, and the people an interesting view of changing times.
