WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Heading off to New Zealand on the first part of it's travels.
The book arrived this morning and I was lucky enough to be able to lie in bed and read it (lovely hubby even brought me breakfast). I hadn't read the book since I was a kid so I didn't remember what happened, so I enjoyed it for the story as well as the language.
I think Roald Dahl really suits the Scots dialect! They've both got a poetic way with words, I think.
I've PMed gillg for an address so will post it Monday - meanwhile my hubby's mother and sister, who are staying with us at the moment, are reading it. :)
Mailed to Ireland yesterday 6/2/08- enjoy!
I loved the illustrations, and the feel of the words in the book.
And my god, it has given me respect for children and adults who are learning to read...it really is quite difficult and you just KNOW that there is a great free flowing story there, if you could only get the words to string together.
Will post out to ZAS tomorrow.
Thanks smurphie - you're a star
