    Joan Aiken is at her best with this collection of gentle fairytales and fantasy stories, beautifully illustrated by Kevin Hawkes The pictures are like little jewels themselves, or tiny raindrops that reflect the people and events in the stories An excellent, cosy, curl up in your favourite quilt read I started this book thinking I d never read it before, but something about one of the stories rang a bell, so I must have done many years ago.My acid test of a good children s book is does it appeal [...]

    A 1001 CBYMRBYGU When I picked up my copy of this book from the library, I was initially very disappointed to find that it was a collection of short stories Then I started the book Mercy It was fantastic Literally and metaphorically Wonderfully written fantasies There is one story about a man who saves the North Wind, who then rewards the man with a gift of a necklace of raindrops Another is the tale of an old woman who accidentally baked a bit of sky in her pie Yet another tells of three men wh [...]

    I loved this when I was a child, but or less forgot about it until I came across it in my university library Then I remembered the magic of it, and all the illustrations were familiar I didn t remember all the stories, but the first and second in particular made an impression on me, and the one that basically included Baba Yaga They re almost fairytales, and that s how I ll shelve them here.Reading them now, I suppose they re smaller than imagination made them, and saccharine But there s fun, [...]

    What an amazing read a loud I highly recommend this book to anyone with children It was a book of 8 short stories that were very creative and fun Our favorite was the first story in the book, Necklace of Raindrops It was about a lucky little girl who got to have the North Wind as her godfather That was the only story my girls wanted me to read over again The story about the men in the desert was pretty boring but the rest were fun.

    I recalled reading this book as a child and how much I enjoyed it my favourite was A necklace of raindrops but the image from The Cat sat on the Mat of Emma hanging on the line to dry always made me laugh.

  8. Lost in a Good Book

    A spectacular collection of magical folk tales for children Each one is wonderfully weird and creative Inspired I read them as a child and relished revisiting these stories as an adult I laughed and grinned I simply love her outlandish fantastical characters and plots A celebration of invention Such pure delight.

  9. Anita

    This was a book that I think every child read when they were young and I was no exception I only had vague memories of the raindrop necklace story but didn t remember the others at all That s probably because the necklace of raindrops is the best one the others are cute and very random but not as memorable A nice book for young kids

  10. Sally

    Great modern for the time it s as old as I am fairy tales A lot of flying things Good use of language repetition and unexpected words and events will entertain younger children Good people beat baddies in the end And those wonderful picutures, too

  11. Becky

    I read this delightful book many years ago and enjoyed it just as much now as I did then The stories are magical and left me with the feeling that anything could happen Wonderful book.

    Title of Book A Necklace of Raindrops Author Joan Aiken Illustrated by JanPienkowskiThis is a charming collection of folk tales which would appeal to children from 5 9 years of age The stories are rather quaint and old fashioned but they effortlessly combine the magical and fantastical with the ordinary The little girl in the first story has been given a magical necklace of raindrops with powers to make it stop or start raining as she wishes but she still has to go to school Aiken introduces the [...]

    I m happy to say I still own my original copy of this book and I will make sure I still have it in years to come when I am old, grey and have kids and grandkids of my own This book is beautifully written, the stories are wonderful and it is truly an underappreciated gem The other short stories in the book are also fantastic but A Necklace of Raindrops has been one of my favourite stories since I was a little kid and to this day I still read it whenever I need a pick me up It s not particularly f [...]

    Oh, how I enjoyed this book with my children My three year old was as entranced as my six year old and seven year old Without trying, a game came about because of one of the stories A baby blanket on the floor became the mat and whenever my two year old happened upon it, we could make any wish we wanted She soon discovered that everyone wanted her to stay on the mat and, naturally, she because noncompliant making wish time fleeting Throughout the week I would find my three year old daughter read [...]

    My daughter took this and the other two collections of children s stories by Joan Aiken that I own along to our POWERtalk meeting the other night for work during an Education Session she led on Storytelling Everybody thought the books and stories delightful and the Education Session went really well for her, too Once again the illustrations by Jan Pienkowski are perfect enhancements to the tales, and the tales are quirky and imaginative and the grandchildren have absolutely loved listening to th [...]

    This is a great collection of very original unusual short imaginative fiction They make great read aloud stories, mostly for 1st 2nd grade but The Baker s Cat works well for kindergarten The story is about a cat that grows enormous after being given some warm milk and yeast I like to bring warm water, sugar, and some yeast to show how yeast rises quickly I start the yeast before the story and by the time the story is done, the yeast has grown visibly and filled the room with wonderful baking sme [...]

    We listened to the audio book which is very very well by an older female actor but it meant we missed out on the illustrations Also, they re quite soporific I think they re meant to be, with the familiar folktale archetypes and symbols and those soothing grammatical structures factored by writers such as Neil Gaiman My eight year old wasn t interested in finishing them when it came to the second night of bedtime reading so I listened on my own I do think I would have loved this collection when I [...]

    My grandma had a version of this when I was a child and I remember reading it constantly It s now become my traditional christmas read as an adult A Necklace of Raindrops has always been my favourite Laura receives a necklace from her Godfather, the North Wind, and receives a raindrop every year for her birthday She then gets it taken off her in school and a classmate steals it It s a beautiful story of her looking for it It s a very short story, but it s really very touching.

    I ve always loved these stories I remember them from when I was a kid and I just unearthed my copy of it in a box of books and had to reread them.There are some gorgeous stories in the book, and always the good guy or girl wins out in the end From a necklace of raindrops full of magic, to a patchwork quilt of stars, to three men working in a train station without any time off it s beautifully magic in every word.

  23. Mathew

    Read it in one night, I loved it that much Some very clever stuff going on beneath the words but, ultimately, a gorgeous collection of short stories that beg be to told rather than read My personal favourite was The Elves on the Shelves but it has made me want to explore of Aiken s short stories A perfect class read for KS1 or even lower KS2 The rich language and clever repetition throughout make these sound like fairy tales than some fairy tales do.

    Absolutely charming I miss fairytales like this A collection of utterly gorgeous stories and in this edition some lovely illustrations I think my favourite story is the cat that sat on the mat and the titular A necklace of raindrops Perfect for a snowed in afternoon and if I had children this would definitely be a collection that I read to them.

  26. Milena

    I grew up loving these stories, I read the Spanish version when I was little I recently purchased the English version because I am able to read the book in its original language now Great stories, not short, not long, just perfect, full of amazing beings and adventures I recommend this for everybody For reading, it is very accessible for 8 year old children.
