Lucy and Tom's Christmas- where can I get a copy?

I would like to buy a copy ( preferably new) of Shirley Hughes' book Lucy and Tom's Christmas. It seems very difficult to buy a copy that isn't very expensive ( on Amazon ). Does anyone know where I can get one from? I live in New Zealand so it would need to be online. If anyone has a copy they would like to sell or swop that would be great too. I could send you a NZ picture book!

I'm afraid, there is no way that you can get a new copy at the moment as it's out of print believe or not! They were selling for about £10+ last year online leading up to Christmas!
Anyway, there are new ones on Ebay (uk) at present with starting bids at 99p (sorry, not sure what that is in New Zealand currency).Try there first, it's the right time of year to buy it while it's still cheap.

sorry, I meant used not new ones on Ebay. They're actually selling used ones from £2.68 on Amazon UK. Not sure what it will cost you being overseas though.

Yes, very hard to find. No idea why they aren't reprinting this.

Um, you could do what I did this summer, and nick it from a holiday cottage we rented. blushblush To be fair, it was very dog-eared and right at the bottom of an unloved heap of children's books, and I did leave several of my own (adult) paperback novels to make up.

I'd haunt ebay if I were you, and perhaps work out what you're prepared to pay for one, and then put a snipe in (with Auctionstealer or similar).
