I'm halfway through this book with the kids and I am tempted to stop. The kids are not into it it is actually pretty slow and boring to be perfectly honest. We homeschool and read constantly. There are only a handful of books that have had recommended to me that we have not finished.

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.
