    Couple of spoilers hereIntended for a younger audience than most of Gee s children s books, this is a fairly lightweight piece, with little room for character drawing except in the most basic, broad brush style Even the main character, Caroline, isn t someone who really lingers in your mind Still many of Gee s normal themes are there, in miniature, and Caroline turns out to be fairly daring in spite of herself Unusually for Gee there isn t a boy in sight most of his children s stories featur Couple of spoilers hereIntended for a younger audience than most of Gee s children s books, this is a fairly lightweight piece, with little room for character drawing except in the most basic, broad brush style Even the main character, Caroline, isn t someone who really lingers in your mind Still many of Gee s normal themes are there, in miniature, and Caroline turns out to be fairly daring in spite of herself Unusually for Gee there isn t a boy in sight most of his children s stories feature at least a duo rather than a single child.The nice touch is that Gee doesn t pander to the idea that young children shouldn t be introduced to new and interesting words, words that are likely to be out of their sphere of knowledge or understanding In fact he plays with this idea by having Caroline herself excited by the sounds of interesting words There are two climaxes, one that comes naturally, when Caroline saves the magic glasses that are special to the world around the corner this is theeffective of the two Set in the real world, its dangers and difficulties are readily identifiable The second climax, set in the other world, and seen in a kind of dream like state, is too distant to really get us involved It s a pretty sure bet that the other young girl will win her battle I read this book because I m working through Gee s children s stories after reading and reviewing a new publication by the Otago University Press which discusses them in detail

    A light read for kids An interesting idea, using a pair of glasses as the object of power in the plot I didn t get drawn into the story as much as I would have liked, but that may be because I am not a kid I read it predominantly because my family used to summer holiday in Nelson, where the action is set , every year when we were kids Brought back good memories of a favourite place.
