'...there were never stars like those first stars.'

Award winning author Siân James offers us a delightful glimpse into her early childhood days in Cardiganshire, beautifully illustrated by Pat Gregory.

She tells us of the night she first sees the Milky Way; the day electricity comes to the Waun; the afternoon Dan and Raymond play Wolves and Travellers; the evening the first bombers drone overhead, and the day she witnesses an event which will change her world forever.

Through her charming vignettes of childhood in the thirties, she tells the tale of her individualistic and affectionate family, of familiar scenes and of unexpected pleasures in the countryside around her home, with both the freshness of a child's vision and the wry and knowing smile of hindsight.

' A vivid, multi-coloured patchwork of holidays, school and Sunday school, washday and blackberrying...it paints a sharp picture of an intelligent, observant child learning about the world she inhabits and the community to which she belongs." Glenda Beagan

' Recalls the nostalgic enchantment of Laurie Lee's Cider with Rosie '- Pauline Young
