Does anyone have an old copy of Garth Pig and the Icecream Lady by Mary Rayner that is just gathering dust on the bookshelf? Condition isn't important as long as its readable. Or does anyone know where I can get one from?

It's one of ds1's favourite library books, but the library have got rid of their only copy and Amazon have sold out. I feel really awful as we haven't had it out for a few months and I promised him that I'd bring it home with me tonight. Serves me right for making promises that I'm not 100% certain I can keep.

I'm singing the "fried or boiled, baked or roast" song as I type ...

You need one hidden and unloved from someones shelf.

Good grief, it's the Holy Grail of books - can't even find it on ebay fgs!

I know, I've searched all over.Looks like I'll have to get one from US, like Bluesky said.

When you say the library have got rid of theirs - it's not sitting in one of their For Sale racks somewhere is it?
