  1. I loved this book as a child, I remember reading it at school, I think it was a hardback then (the memory’s a bit blurry) and it was one of the first books I bought for my children in paperback, it’s a wonderful interactive book and I will look forward to reading it with my grandchildren (which is some way off yet hopefully)! Thanks for the memory! Cath.
