Miss Happiness had a red kimono patterned with chrysanthemums, Miss Flower’s was blue with a pattern of cherry blossom; both their sashes were pink and on their feet they had painted white socks and painted sandals with a V-shaped strap across the toes. They were not new: Miss Flower had a chip out of one ear, her pretty kimono was torn and the paint had come off one of Miss Happiness’s shoes.

when I was reading Rumer Godden's Miss Happiness and Miss Flower, I was actually and personally feeling so repeatedly .

I love her children's books just as much as her novels for adults.

Chapter 3 Miss Flower could not help being anxious about the house. Some of the inside walls should slide too, but they are plain. ‘Yes,’ breathed Miss Happiness and Miss Flower. The roof should be tiles, dark blue or grey. Will Miss Nona know that a Japanese house should have walls that slide open like windows?’ ‘Paper windows,’ said Miss.

Chopsticks, not spoons and forks? Cushions, not chairs?’. You know she knows about cushions,’ said Miss Happiness. But bowls, not cups?’. Hush, she is studying. Miss Flower tried to hush but she could not help a small whisper. It takes so long to study. If we could tell her. What can we do for Honourable Miss?’

When little Nona is sent from her sunny home in India to live with her relatives in chilly England, she is miserable. Then a box arrives for her in the post and inside, wrapped up in tissue paper, are two little Japanese dolls. A slip of paper says their names are Miss Happiness and Miss Flower. Nona thinks that they must feel lonely too, so far away from home. Then Nona has an idea - she will build her dolls the perfect house! It will be just like a Japanese home in every way. It will even have a tiny Japanese garden. And as she begins to make Miss Happiness and Miss Flower happy, Nona finds that she is happier too.

I love "Miss Happiness and Miss Flower" and have read it at least a dozen times, but the 2002 Harper Collins edition has at least one major flaw- the last three paragraphs of chapter 2 are missing from the book. I haven't finished my copy yet to see if more text has been omitted, but the missing paragraphs I mentioned contain important information which advances the plot. Additionally, the wonderful original illustrations by Jean Primrose have been excluded. I highly recommend this book, but make sure you do not buy the 2002 Harper Collins edition!

I read Miss Happiness and Miss Flower more than 25 years ago, when I was in high school. That summer, the little girls I was babysitting were enchanted by the idea of building a doll house of their own. Every night for several weeks, they asked me to read and re-read their favorite parts of the book. Like the main character, Nona, they wanted to learn more about Japan, its customs, and traditions. The three of us spent hours in the public library doing research and building a house out of shoe boxes. We also talked about the bad behavior of the character Belinda, and discussed why she acted so mean. I never forgot the book and was delighted to find it again. I highly recommend this book.

As "Harry Potter" calls out to today's young bright outsiders looking for somewhere to truly belong, this book spoke to me. It mesmerised me as a little girl. As an USAF "brat" I very much understand Nona's ache and anger as the "weird" outsider. I fell in love with the dolls as well. Their "voices" sounded like two little doting "aunties" as they subtly manipulated Nona and Belinda into seeing past their differences and fears and into finding friendship. If only I had had such a wonderful pair of guardian angels of my own back then.

Rumer does a great job of painting two total opposites of little girls with warmth and sympathy while never truly turning either into either a villian or a bad joke (way too rare). She showed that even our flaws can become strengths when they are accepted and we are willing to be loved.

One thing that really grabbed me as a child was that the book included all the plans for the house and the furnishings the girls eventually build for their little foriegn guests. I spent hours pouring over the school library copy back then. I nearly wore it out. Now my girls will be able to indulge in the same pleasure without having to always be on the look out for the due date.

This time we'll be building the Japanese doll house together.

Someway, as a long-time reader of Rumer Godden, this book has slipped under my notice. That error has been rectified, and every word was a delight. It is appropriate for any reader age ten, or more. I certainly enjoyed it at sixty-five. It was more than worth the Kindle price. Times may have changed, but family dynamics and homesickness are still heart-touching. It is a pleasure to see circumstances work out for the good of the group.

Miss Happiness and Miss Flower was one of my very favorite books as a child, and the original edition rates five stars plus. I spent hours imagining building a Japanese dollshouse, and actually making some of the things Nona makes for her dolls. The paperback edition pictured, alas, deserves only four stars, because it leaves out a crucially important and wonderful part of the original book: the plans and instructions to build a Japanese dollshouse like the one built in the story. It is a perfectly delightful story, but part of what made the book so wonderful was the inclusion of the plans. I bought the paperback to give to my great-nieces, but I will now try to find them an edition that includes the house plans.

One of my favorite books from childhood. Just wish it contained directions on how to build the Japanese doll house.

After visiting Japan, I felt nostalgic about Rumer Godden’s books I read as a child. These were a joy to read again.
This is such an excellent book for young readers (and adults alike). I read this with my mother and sister when I was a child, then we built our own Japanese house and garden! Brought back great memories as both have passed on.

I love the cover on this book! It is not the original dust cover, however it is really great!
