This is a pre-loved book and is part of our new collection of second hand independently published books wth matching bookmark. It is in very good condition.
This 1938 novel became a children's literature classic when it was reissued as a Puffin paperback in 1955 but Persephone have published it for both adults and children to read. It shows five children successfully looking after themselves when their parents go away and fail to return; and 'it is partly because of modern curtailment of childhood independence that Persephone Books (which has a cult following for its elegant resurrection of novels by women writers) has reissued the novel,' wrote Rachel Johnson on the Daily Telegraph Education page.
The Children who Lived in a Barn is Persephone Book number 27.
Publisher: Persephone Books
