I first read At the Back of the North Wind when I was a child but have re-read or regularly since that time---giving it to my book club that reads British literature as a "must read." Predating such contemporary authors as Phillip Pullman by over a century, and reflecting Pullman's view and the view of J.K. Rowling, his perspective was that he was writing about universal truth--applicable to the 5, 15, 0or 50 year old readier. The story of Diamond an young boy in Victorian England, in my opinion is both touching, fantastic and yet full of meaning for the modern reader. Some didactic in its approach, it reflected the ministerial background of its author. I love this book dearly and it has continued to inspire and strengthen me as I have aged into the "over 50" year old reader I am today.
