Me too! Not sure who'll read it first though - think I will have to fight DD over it!

Me too! I was a bit hmm over the lack of posts on this thread though!

I've been picked too! Really looking forward to it. I hope my son will read it too. He is currently into The Lord of the Rings. Not sure which age group this is aimed at?

It looks like my type of book though

Has anybody received their book yet? We were lucky enough to be picked, but no book... I had made the mistake of telling DD1 about it and everyday she is disappointed that it hasn't come.

SisterMatic Wed 03-Jul-13 18:54:33

Hi Everyone,

I am chasing the publishers about this now, once I get a response I will be in touch by e-mail.

Hi Everyone,

The publishers have said that the warehouse sent the books out on the 28th of June, if no one receives their copy by next week Wednesday latest, please do let me know on the thread.

Thanks smile

Hi Everyone,

I finally have some good news! Your books are being sent out tomorrow. The publishers have asked me to pass on their apologies as there was a mix up with their warehouse.

Please do post on the thread once your books have arrived.

The case of the mystery books has finally been solved grin
