read this book. it is MOST excellent.
i accidentally read the adult version which has got a more cartoony cover instead of the kids version which has an old people’s boring cover. i suspect the kids version has the swearing taken out.
it’s one of the best books i’ve read in a very long time. here is my copy with it’s half price sticker on it.
i’m reading The Book of Matches by Nicholson Baker at the moment and it is most excellent. a regular reader recommended another book by this author which i couldn’t find in my local bookshop so i bought this instead.
excellent for not saying much about anything in a nicely detailed way. read it. marvellous.
