Love this book!
Awesome book! I remembered reading it as a child in Primary School, and purchased it for my own children to enjoy. They absolutely love it, and is often read again straight away after finishing it!

I purchased this book to replace a very worn out copy our school library had for quite a few years. It was well known to all our students and often used by teachers for its language content example. Overall very pleased we were able to obtain a new copy.
