'The Opies have compiled the most complete and the most sympathetic, also the most sensible account of what children prefer to do on their own.' -- Country Life 'It is a work of serious anthropology and sociology ... but unlike most works concerned with these disciplines, it is consistently readable, always humane, and sometimes very funny.' -- New Statesman 'A fascinating book, the product of many years' immensely detailed and original research, which is bound to become the standard work upon the history and modern practice of street games.' -- New Society 'Fascinating research ... I hope that the publication of this book will revive the debate about the kinds of games our children play.' -- David Lorimer, Scientific and Medical Network Review 'Thank goodness Floris Books has published these two classic books, where the Opies' have recorded the traditional games that children across the UK played while out of the sight of adults. Most parents will relate to descriptions of the games they themselves played. This new edition promotes an active and natural approach to family life and child development.' -- Kindling, Spring/Summer 2009 'The authors have immersed themselves in a child's world readily pronouncing one game "jolly" and another "appllingly tedious". It is exactly these personal touches and the evident affection that the authors have for their subjects that lifts the book from being solely an impressive catalogue of children's games to being an engaging exploration of a domain unsullied by adult intervention' -- The Social Creditor
