Enjoyed by my 7 year old little girl in bed

My 7 year old little girl loved listening to this lovely story. She liked the donkey the best. She also says the garden was wonderful.

A great feel good story

Mr Skip is a great story, in which a kind and loving little girl's dreams come true. Her friendship for Mr Skip, a magical gnome, is rewarded in the most unimaginable ways. A tale of love, faith and friendship that teaches those on top of the world not to scoff and those who feel at the bottom never to stop believing and hoping that things can change for the better! Narrator is a fabulous story teller who keeps you engaged and interested.

Sweet, quirky story

My four year old, eight year old, and I all enjoyed this story, though it's not on the same level as Morpurgo's better known work like War Horse or The Butterfly Lion. He evoked the setting- an Irish estate - in a charming way, and I loved that it was a female protagonist trying to better the sexist boys. Narration was very strange though in that, although it was a first person narrative about an Irish girl, she spoke in an English accent and reverted to Irish for the dialogue. I felt this detracted from the story a bit,and didn't make any sense, as the narrator could clearly do an Irish accent.

Not keen on the narration

Was it not possible to find an Irish actor for this? The posh English accent detracted from the story in my opinion.
