CHRISTMAS WITH THE SAVAGES by Mary Clive is based on real events and people It is the story of a small girl's Christmas holiday in a large Edwardian country house is effortlessly funny At Tamerlane Hall Evel Mary Clive's Christmas with the Savages was the perfect children's classic to read in December It's about Evelyn an 8 year old who much prefers the company of adults to other children Evelyn is dismayed when she is sent toTamerlane Hall a large Edwardian house in the countryside where she finds children than she's ever experienced before – the Glens the Howliboos and the SavagesChristmas with the Savages was a delightful festive read full of humour It's based on Mary Clive's own experiences growing up – and it was lovely to be transported into this eccentric family's holiday celebrations All the children are left to roam the house and gardens so it's full of hilarious escapades and antics I loved Evelyn's prim and proper opinion on just about everything from the youngest of children to the Nannies who can't uite cope with all 13 childrenChristmas with the Savages is a classic I only discovered this year and I'm so very glad I did If you're participating in the 2016 Classics Challenge be sure to consider this one for December I also reviewed this book over on Pretty Books

Christmas with the SavagesYn finds a horde of children the gentle Glens the plaintive Howliboos and above all the uninhibited Savages They are controlled or not by a host of parents supernumerary Uncles and Aunts Nannies and nurserym I just happened to see this book at the till in a bookshop and seeing that it was half price I thought I would give it ago even though it was a children's book Set at the turn of the century Evelyn is sent away at Christmas to stay with the Savages the unruly grandchildren of an old friend of her mother's Lady Tamerlane Any other child would perhaps relish the thought of spending time with children her own age but not Evelyn Wise beyond her years Evelyn much prefers the company of adults so her stay with the Savage children will not be an enjoyable experienceIf I had been reading this book as a child it would've been very enlightening about how children at the turn of the last century spent their childhoods Although the main character of Evelyn is invented this story is based upon Mary's own experience of growing up in the first 20 years of the last centuryA very enjoyable story for both adults and children with plenty of humour for all ages
