Tender but not nostalgic, and a bit quaint, this little book of childhood reminiscences is a tiny delight. Sentences like "yellow eyes of musk blossoms peeped from crannies" (page 92) peep up every two or three pages.

“Small roamed beach and woods, the dog with her always. Owning him was better even than she had dreamed.” Who was Small? She was the embodiment of Emily Carr’s childhood—a phantom child. In this collection of vignettes, the reader sees life in Victoria, BC, at the end of the last century, as observed by a little girl of intense imagination. Delightful and memorable storytelling.
