Superb British Entertainment!
31 July 2003 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

What a delightful portrayal of Mr. Brenson's works! One wishes that his entire series of books had been included; it would have been a plethora of riches indeed! Having recently had the great pleasure visiting Rye, It is now possible to immerse myself all the more completely into these tales! (Beautiful country, by the way!)
