RACKETTY PACKETTY HOUSE As told by Queen Crosspatch. By Frances Hodgson Burnett Author of "Little Lord Fauntleroy". Now this is the story about the doll family I liked and the doll family I didn't. They never call or leave their cards at a dolls' house where the dolls are proud or bad tempered. They are very particular. If you are conceited or ill tempered yourself, you will never know a fairy as long as you live. Racketty packetty house. Racketty Packetty House was in a corner of Cynthia's nursery. And it was not in the best corner either. It was in the corner behind the door, and that was not at all a fashionable neighborhood. Racketty Packetty House had been pushed there to be out of the way when Tidy Castle was brought in, on Cynthia's birthday.

RACKETTY-PACKETTY HOUSE As told by Queen Crosspatch. Racketty-Packetty House had been pushed there to be out of the way when Tidy Castle was brought in, on Cynthia's birthday. As soon as she saw Tidy Castle Cynthia did not care for Racketty-Packetty House and indeed was quite ashamed of it. She thought the corner behind the door quite good enough for such a shabby old dolls' house, when there was the beautiful big new one built like a castle and furnished with the most elegant chairs and tables and carpets and curtains and ornaments and pictures and beds and baths and lamps and book-cases, and with a knocker on the front door

Frances Hodgson Burnett (Author). This is the story of two doll houses, Racketty Packetty House and Tidy Castle. When Cynthia receives a brand new dollhouse, Racketty Packetty house and its shabby dolls are pushed aside and forgotten. But no matter how neglected and rundown the dollhouse becomes, the dolls inside stay cheerful and have fun in their own charming way. I remember reading this little story when I was younger, when I loved reading books about toys that came to life.

The characters of Meg and Peg and Kilmankeg, Peter Piper, Gustibus and Ridiklis are all funny and unforgettable.

The owner of a tumble-down dollhouse neglects its shabby occupants for a more aristocratic dollhouse and tenants, until a princess comes to visit and likes the racketty-packetty house better.
Reviews: 7
This is a book of it's time and thus a bit too wordy. Also a book for children of the late 1800's or early 1900's and I don't think children would enjoy it today. The cheerfullness and the jokes are too simple I would think. Not to be compared with "Little Lord Fauntleroy", "The secret Garden" or "A little Princess", which are still very enjoyable.
I checked out Racketty-Packetty House from the library. It was a sweet story and my 7 year old daughter loved it. She read it in one sitting. Her reading level is 5th grade. This edition is a thin paperback with pretty small type and no illustrations. I did expect that for $2.50, but I had hoped for a little larger type and a few black and white illustrations. There aren't any. So, I wouldn't recommend this edition. The stories and vocabulary in this book are great for advanced 2nd and 3rd graders, but not with this size type.

Instead, I'd recommend this edition of the Racketty-Packetty House: The Racketty-Packetty House: 100th Anniversary Edition The illustrator who illustrated this book also illustrated the Cobble Street Cousins books by Cynthia Rylant A Little Shopping: Ready-for-Chapters (Cobble Street Cousins), which I'd also recommend for young girls this age range. They're very sweet early chapter books.
Children today do not appreciate a really wonderful dolls' house. But this story might do it for them. I loved this tale. It's like Toy Story set in the late 1800's or very early 1900's. Very highly recommended!
Me Burnett is such an amazing story teller. She never disappoints. In a world where stories have become action adventure, sex to sell Burnett sweet stories are refreshing and amazing.
This is a short, quick read story. I think little girls would love it. About a doll house and the dolls that live in it.
Slowly writer
Short and sweet, with a great lesson implied but not stated. A good way to teach kids about contentment and being cheerful even in difficult circumstances. A classic for sure.
I love this book! a kindergartener could read it but as a 6th grader it is nice to read "little kid books" once in a while.
I loved this little book as a child and didn't think I'd ever find it again. The illustrations are so delightful and the story line equally so. A children's book from another time and place but a message for today.
