Memorable and often haunting
15 June 2003 | by Dave_BobWSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this on television; from the date I must have been about 8. I read the book after seeing it on TV.

I recall the 'nasty ogre' character who made the children walk on the 'drugget' (a new word I learnt) - a sort of sheet down the middle of the stairs - to save wear on the stair carpet. I think I was a bit shocked that people weren't always nice to the evacuees who they were billeted with.

I can't recall the entire story now, but I remember something about Carrie dropping a blackened skull down a well. Carrie was the 'stronger' character and was protective towards her brother. There was also a simple character (who would now be described as having 'learning difficulties') called Mr Johnny.
