Review this title!

Lovely old-fashioned story still has traction in 21st century

I thought the old fashioned language might be a turn-off for my daughter but she really loves the concept of tiny people hidden within a house, and is willing to perservere with some of the old, particularly English vocabulary. It's been good from a historical perspective too, explaining household life in Edwardian England and some of the issues around class etc.
