    1. Very wacky. A really fun read. The characters are ridiculous, but it's amazing how attached you become to Poppy!


    2. i used to love this book haha. breezed through it in one sitting just now, can't really write an objective opinion because every time something familiar came up it just brought back good feelings/memories. maybe a 3.5? just because it was kind of fun and imaginative, but a bit superficial?


    3. Interestingly written book; uses elements of poetry within a prose. The end, especially, is a sight to be read AND heard.


    4. This was my favourite childhood book and the only one I made sure to keep hold of. The story follows the gothic Poppy Picklesticks, living on the rickety, broken and tattered 'Vinegar Street' with the wackiest bunch of family characters. Tingle Voice is a mysterious voice inside of Poppy that talks to her and one day senses danger when the nasty Mandy Nylon pulls up next door and announces herself as her new neighbour. Mandy has everyone under her 'charm' and wants to change the neighbourhood in [...]


    5. My very first Philip Ridley book that i bought, since i haven't read it that time. Where i had to force my mom let me buy it at Magrudy's bookstore Deira Dubai City Center. She agreed anyway because she really did expose me & my sisters into buying ton's of books if we wanted to, instead of unnecessary stuff. :)


    6. This is a childhood favourite of mine that I have recently received as a gift and re-read. I find the story so magical and heart warming! A story about being true to yourself and sticking by family and friends. This book touches on serious issues without being too serious at all. Will leave you feeling magical and mysterious!


    7. One of my favourite books as a child! Absolutely fantastic read, very surrealist, enchanting and fantastical. I was so drawn into the magic bubble world this book created for me. Very sad it is now out of print and quite difficult to get hold of as it is so incredible!


    8. This book opened up a new world for me when I was a child. Pure, delicious escapism. I imagined astral travelling all over the world because of this book. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone, but especially children. A great way to exercise the imagination is to read a book by Philip Ridley :)



    9. if you're a sad, lonely and slightly delusional escapist kid like me, these books were meant for yout read in 2015
