An interesting read... written from a child's eye view. A trip to Wales pony trekking. I like the way every thing is described. Their adventures and that the story has a moral to it.

The book gave lots of insights in to the author being in (and out) the asylum, the problems faced there and the mixed feelings he felt.
It was well written and flowed well. I read it all in one go and would definitely recommend this book.
