I bought this book for the "1001 Books to Read Before You Die" list. This is one of the few times that the movie is better than the book.

January 16, 2020 Such a great story!!! I absolutely loved this book. Terribly stunned towards the end, though. I hope we all have a Mrs. 'Arris in our lives and that we show them our appreciation and gratitude! Now I will have to find the movie to watch as a previous comment says the movie is better than the book!

Many years ago, the all-girls high school I attended had a musical written based on this book. Perfect for an all-girls school we did not have to recruit very many men to fill out the caste. As best I remember, the musical follows the book pretty closely. Although instead of only Mrs. Butterfield, we had a chorus of char women. They had a delightful song and dance piece with mops and buckets. The House of Dior actually lent us a gown! Not the one described in the book but a crystal sequined gown. When the spotlight hit that dress, the whole theater lit up!
The musical had the same intrepid, naive but wise main character, Mrs. ‘Arris. And the same warm uplifting view of the world.
