    1. Hope is a maid in a grand London home. She's been scolded, abused and forgotten by her employers and the staff. She's been continually told to get her head out of the clouds and stop dreaming. Hope, however, can't help it. Long ago her mother told her stories and taught her to dream. When a mysterious couple come to the house and cause chaos, a lady named Cassandra tells Hope some strange things about imagination and hope. She believes Hope, the little maid, could be someone important. The next [...]


    2. It seems silly to give a book I know I will never recommend to anyone or read again 4 stars. It is so odd and obscure, I can't see anyone actually finding it or recognizing it for what it is, which is to say, Tanith Lee being her normal awesome self. I love the way she has of treating all characters as equal - children aren't talked down to, adults don't always have the answer, anything can be magical or funny. I haven't read anything by her in about a year, but I am reminded as to why I scoured [...]


    3. Good book! The story is very straightforward and simple, a good fantasy read without confusing plot twists. My favorite parts in the story were when (view spoiler)[ Hope gets wings (hide spoiler)] and when Hope was still living at the River's house. So much fun all around! There were many bits of silliness throughout the book too, and every character had a happy and positive attitude. (except for the River family.) My favorite character is the Genie, who wasn't perfect and messed things up ALL T [...]


    4. Not a bad story, bit simplistic but good for the age level. I plan on reading the next book in the series soon but have to read others first! It was fun to see the characters from the original book again.


    5. This story is very interesting and enchanting. I would recommend it as a read-aloud for children 3-8. The book itself is at the age 7-9 reading level, and would be an enjoyable read for children in second through fourth grade (advanced for second grade and at the expected ability for a fourth grader). Tanith Lee, as always, is a master of fantasy and creates a full and alive world for her readers.


    6. This was definitily an intresting book, I loved it, I also read it again to one of my sisters just to read it again and to let them get into it just like I had.
