Not for the first time am I little bit annoyed to read a rave review of a book that failed to mention it's a children's book. But all in al, I still really enjoyed it.

Apart from the review, the cover really drew me in. I love the cover. I was a bit disappointed to discover that the physical book is chockablock with fantastic illustrations. Why are audiobook listeners deprived of these? Is there still some myth that most audiobook listeners are blind? I would have loved if the images were part of the download. Actually in a perfect world, a digital purchase would get you an audiobook and an e-book in package.

I also just finished listening to a Mark Kermode book where he said at one point "Look at the image below"!

Abby Wynne My paperback had no illustrations and I was quite happy without them.
