My mum just found this book in her bedroom - it was my favourite book as a kid. We must have got it when I was about 5 or 6 - it was in the Blue Peter sale thingy they held in my school all those many years ago and used to belong to a girl called Franceska as she has written her name on a sticker at the front.
I wonder where she is now and how old she is?
It's a lovely set of stories, I remember them quite well and I still laugh at them even now. I suppose my mother's hoping to give it to the jumble - but I don't think so! It might be tatty, but I want it.
