A fantastically silly book, being cleared out of daughter's collection to make room for more books.

Received in the post from Shnedwards and just out of quarantine after her offering it in the RABCK thread. Thanks very much for this wishlist book which was highly recommended by a dear friend who is sadly no longer with us. (Thanks also to David for the recommendation-looks like my kind of book). I shall look forward to reading it as soon as I can fit into one of Plum-Crazy's monthly "what to Read" themes in the Forum under Book Talk. Promised to Russbaum next so will be reading it sooner rather than later.

REVIEW:-"This was a very unusual book which I enjoyed on more than one level. I'm not sure if it's aimed at children or adults-probably both, but it did appeal to me. I though Milo was very brave as he took on the many challenges that faced him and dealt with his strange companions and the characters they met on their travels. I though he would have been more depressed about his prison sentence of several million years but he seemed to take that in his stride too. The Valley of Sound brought a tear to my eye as the people there wrote of their longing to hear and be able to make sounds as they used to. (they had been too busy to listen to and appreciate the lovely sounds around them so the un-listened to sounds disappeared and were never heard again). Milo certainly learnt from his journey and I hope I too have gained from thinking about the true moral of this story. There is still so much to appreciate even in the middle of a global pandemic and I know I should count my blessings."
Book reserved for Russ-Baum and I hope to post it this week.

This book was sent to Russbaum as part of an arranged swap (Three Things About Elsie).

To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

Gratefully received. I read this to my kids when they were much younger and now I am going to pass this copy to my niece. Thanks for sending it onwards.
