    Bambini e ragazzi si possano educare da soli; l'amicizia tra loro può aiutarli a migliorarsi; il lavoro e la vita all'aperto garantiscono un corpo sano e favoriscono un buon equilibrio psicologico: queste sono quindi le tesi educative del romanzo, in netto contrasto con le convinzioni pedagogiche dell'epoca.

The satisfying Cinderella quality of the first book which illustrated the harsh realism of Edwardian society, combines with the exciting melodramatic developments in the second book to create an intriguing story that continues to entertain us today.
