This is a really interesting book about how the series came about and was filmed. It includes information about the actors, characters, author, writers and background. Without giving away any plots, the book looks at what life was like in the fifties in that part of London. I highly recommend this book of you like the series.

Anyone who loved the series will love this book. All kinds of behind the scenes things which will inspire you to watch the series again. So glad I bought this one while waiting for the 2nd book to be available for NOOK.

I loved this book. It was like reading Heidi's personal journal and her scrapbook as well.

A wonderful book! It not only gives you a major glimpse behind this charming and touching series but a real "feel" for the local and time frame. If possible, it makes you appreciate the series even more!
