Good as Gold

The expression “as good as gold” was used in 1843 to describe Tiny Tim in Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol and is an expression we still use to this day. It is a phrase with many definitions, but is often used to describe something as being genuine and of a high standard.

So it is fitting that a book about a tiny mouse, a cat with a secret and Charles Dickens has garnered a Parent’s Choice Gold Award in Historical Fiction. Huzzah!
