As I child, I went to a small school where my library teacher was a very cool lady. She used to have an assortment of audio books that we could lend out. This book in particular was a favourite of mine. For weeks and weeks on end, my library teacher let me lend this out, barely ever bringing it back for about three years.
I have just located a second hand copy on eBay in book format and I can't wait to read it.
Best story ever!!
