Nine of her works have been made into films, most notably Black Narcissus in 1947.

I love reading anything that Rumer Godden writes. I enjoyed this very much. A cute story with a bit of a moral to it.

One important fact concerned the title, and the word ‘Diddakoi’ is explained very early on: it describes someone who is half gipsy and half of Irish background, like Kizzy, the central character. Kizzy is a passionate, high-spirited girl, who fights against injustice, cruelty and unfairness, the sort of character Rumer Godden frequently wrote about in her stories; she.

The story of young gypsy girl who has been orphaned

The story of young gypsy girl who has been orphaned A satisfying. There's a girt who's a gypsy. She has rings in her ears and she sometimes comes to school in a little wagon.

There's a girl who's a gypsy. While I in particular have appreciated the happy ending of Rumer Godden's The Diddakoi (albeit that I do find it almost a bit too fairytale like and magical to be a totally realistic conclusion, kind of like a happily-ever-after tale with Kizzy basically getting the best of both the Romany and the non Romany worlds), I do have.

Rumer Godden's The Diddakoi won the 1972 Whitbread Children's Book Award. Everyone in Kizzy's town hates her because she's half-gypsy – a diddakoi. But Kizzy doesn't care

Rumer Godden's The Diddakoi won the 1972 Whitbread Children's Book Award. But Kizzy doesn't care. All she needs is Gran and her horse, Joe. But when Gran dies and their wagon burns down, Kizzy is all alone. No one wants to look after her and her beloved Joe might get sent to the knacker's yard. Can Kizzy survive in a hostile world – and save Joe? Books by Rumer Godden.

Read "Miss Happiness and Miss Flower" at the age of 9 in 1961, and have been happily collecting and. reading her books ever since (thank goodness for the libraries and internet to track down some of the early ones).

When a young gypsy girl's only relative dies, she must learn to accept both the kindness and derision of the non-gypsy residents of an English village

I am writing about Gypsies, and this book only added to my knowledge through Gypsy family life. This is a story about a Gypsy girl here in America, and the discrimination portrayed in the book is pretty standard in Europe too. There are better written accounts of stories like this, and I did not finish the book.

I loved this book as a child and love it even more now. Many of the books from this era do not hold up well in light of the changes that have taken place in the last 50 years. This one is still a winner.

Great first "real" novel for a young reader (8+). Written in colloquial English dialect so it's best read aloud by an adult who can quickly define unusual vocabulary. Wonderful story with many interesting twists and turns to the plot and sound character building lessons. My almost 8 year-old granddaughter doubled over in laughter at comical circumstances and shared tears of both sadness and joy. I would highly recommend this for a read-aloud to young readers and for independent older readers.

It was a perfect gift.

Excellent book about children's harsh treatment of others who seem 'different' to them and about a child's adjustment after having been ripped out of one culture into a radically different one. Charming story! I was late discovering Rumer Godden and have ordered several of her books from Amazon. Glad I finally found her.

A must read for everyone. A classic tale of childhood bullying and the lessons learned about discrimination. Great story too!
A soothing story, gentle, but not too sweet. I found it particularly pleasant in this restless times full of revolutions and threatening wars.
