Badger On The Barge book. Meet cussed, rebellious Miss Brady, living alone with a badger. I found it on a list by Daniel Hahn, of "underrated or forgotten children's books". The themes are very true to life: the loneliness of the elderly, the uncertainty of adolescence, death, identity, peer pressure, the need for community at all ages, the important contributions of one generation to another, and much more. the interactions of an older person with a younger.

On a scale of 1 to 10, this book rates about a billion. It is that much better than all other children's literature I've encountered (and that's quite a lot). It's a very good adult's book too. It contains five substantial, meaty and engaging stories and is appropriate for fourth grade and up. The writer has complete respect for her characters and her readers. I'm tempted to refer only to child readers, but it's true for all, including us adults.

Though one story could perhaps have been omitted without loss, each of Howker's five children grows in a different way: how is central, not the relationship per se. From any point of view, the title (and lead-off). From any point of view, the title (and lead-off) story is the standout. Five stories built around the relationship between a child and an old person might seem too much of a prevalent motif. The old persons are all odd ducks, too-loners, social deviants of some sort, persons who confide in children, and need and trust them. Though one story could perhaps have been omitted without loss, each of Howker's five children grows in a different way: how is central, not the relationship per se.

Set in the north-west of England, each of these powerful stories abounds with absorbing situations and memorable characters. Meet cussed, rebellious Miss Brady, who lives with a badger on a barge; the reviled old shepherd, Reicker; Sally Beck, a topiary gardener with an extraordinary past; the reclusive Egg Man; proudly independent Jakey...and the young people whose lives they profoundly affect.
