I really loved Jane in this first book, and was glad that a lot of the stories focused on her. She’s a sweet little girl with a big heart, and two troublesome brothers to look after. She is full of energy and emotion, and she rises up to every challenge.
I hated Theodore in this book, just as I have in every book in this series. He’s a bully. He’s selfish and downright mean to his siblings. He blames everyone else for his problems, instead of taking responsibility. He’s terrible, and I hate him.
The plot is wonderful, with lots of funny little adventures and misunderstandings! I love the charming writing style, and the beautiful country setting.
