My mum got this book from a charity shop when I was about 7 but I only got round to reading it about 2 years later. When I had finished I couldn't believe I'd put it off for so long! Since then I've read it countless times and it's still as funny as it was all those years ago (I'm now 22). I would recommend this book to anyone from the age of 7 to 70, as long as you have an imagination and sense of humour, you should love it. If there's any way you can get hold of a copy, do so as soon as possible, you don't know what you're missing!
