At the End of Holyrood Lane
Flick loves living at the end of Holyrood Lane—except when it storms. Then, she hides and waits for the rumbling and rain to go away. But when she gets caught in the heart of a storm one day, she learns maybe she does not have to face her fears alone.
At the End of Holyrood Lane is a charming book that can take place just about anywhere with seasons and rainstorms, making it relatable for young readers who also might not like thunder and strong winds. Flick is an endearing protagonist, gracefully romping about the pages with her flower crown, ribbon, and plush unicorn, and readers will be hoping everything turns out all right for her after the frightening storms. A story about getting over one’s fear of storms could come across as preachy, but here it is charismatic and approachable. Soft, imaginative illustrations help create the “everywhere and nowhere” atmosphere for the story and show that storms might even be a bit beautiful in their own way. Overall, this is a delightful book.
