It's when I haven't got anywhere to go that I get mad straight away. But if I go there for half an hour it's beautiful to come back.'Fourteen-year-old Susan is talking about her Parcel of Trees, the secret place she found and nearly lost. This is the story of how she managed to keep it, by clever detective work. a legal battle with the Railway Company, and sheer determination. But a book by William Mayne is more than just a series of interesting events. It's like being given a pair of magic spectacles and stepping right into a picture.

A Parcel of Trees Reviews

  • Avril

    The fourth Puffin Story book I have read in quick succession, and this book, PS195, completely makes up for the disappointment of The Young Detectives, PS47. It is beautifully written, with a realistic attractive family and a gently interesting plot. I can highly recommend it.

    Interesting little book. William Mayne might be problematic but his writing and storytelling are great, and Margery Gill's illustrations are fantastic.

  • Nancy

    Little girl trying to find a place to be alone. I can totally relate. I loved the Margery Gill illustrations.
