Guardian Unlimited Books | Review | Top tales for sunny days

Julia Eccleshare does a roundup of some accessible reads for all ages. I haven't yet read Eva Ibbotson's new book, inhibited by a worry that it may disappoint after the truly excellent, indeed classic, Journey To The River Sea. But on the basis of Eccleshare's assessment, it seems I should have no further concerns on that score...

Eva Ibbotson creates a marvellous world of rich and poor, kind and unkind, young and old against a background of Viennese convention. The Star of Kazan is a heartwarming, old-fashioned adventure, every bit as absorbing as Ibbotson's prize-winning Journey to the River Sea.
