Got from Sandra Buttle for my 21st after asking for books from The Big Read. Read the entire thing on the train to London on the 15th of August 2010.

A good kids' book, great even I suppose, but very short and very close to the film which I know well, so a bit disappointing for me. I thought it might be a bit more in depth, but anyway it was good enough, a lark :P

Number 35 on the BBC's Big Read.
