Wow that takes me back. My hubby couldn't understand how I could get so 'into' a novel about moles!
Don't know what I did with the book...........lost it in our library I guess!

How coincidental! I'm in the middle of reading this myself. It was the first "proper" book I read as a child and I loved it. I keep going back to it every year. Such a lovely story, definatly worth a read.
