U 50x66
** spoiler alert ** I've got the original 1972 version and the newer 2004 version.

I love looking at the differences:
Lots of the Canberra landmarks have been swapped around - the Shine Dome replaced with new Parliament House, etc. The introduction of Black Mt Tower.

I particularly like at the end when the zoo keeper contacts the Prime Minister - was a telegram now an email!

I also love the new picture of the PM - clearly modelled on Bob Hawke!

While not changing the basic storyline just about every line in the book has been modified - while always loving the original I think the newer version is actually an easier read.
