What is more frightening than a quiet, pastoral village being invaded by alien children? Wyndham may have been the first to put this modern twist to the old "changeling" story.
Short as this novel is, it gradually and clearly develops the nature of the children's power and their menace to a seemingly impotent human race.
The escalating horror of The Midwich Cuckoos is enhanced by the reader's perfect British composure.
