I know the price is horrendous! Other copies are 55 pounds! Because they were a school series, it's likely that there aren't many around any more. The ones that were in print will have been battered by multiple kids!
They were so good, I remember being genuinely excited when I got a new one, and my parents actually being excited too when I brought one home! Beats biff chip and kipper into a cocked, captain Jory style hat!
Well! I can go back a lot further to a time when mobile phones and ebooks were unheard of, to a Classroom of five year old's listening so attentively to a brilliant Primary School Teacher, as she read 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit!' I remember being on the edge of my chair not wanting her to 'ever' stop reading aloud to us! I wonder sometimes if teachers ever fully realise the profound effect they have on our little lives at these times! I loved the stories then and I love them to this Day!
