  5. Mr Milne says:

    A powerful and touching book about a small rural community that is initially hostile to a young Romany girl who is different to them but comes to understand her. Although it is set in times gone by, The Diddakoi covers lots of issues and themes (about growing up, alienation, loneliness, bullying and attitudes to people different to you) that are as important and relevant today as they ever were.
