This review is from: A Friend Like Ben: The cat that came home for Christmas (Hardcover)
This book was featured in an article on the internet, & this really made the complete story a must-read. There is no e-book available outside the UK & the printed book is only available from Amazon.uk. I couldn't understand why since the story has universal appeal. What a nice surprise I got when I started reading it, since it is not only a touching story but a delightful puzzle for Yanks like me who know nothing about London. I am annotating the book in pencil in the margins after looking up the definitions of the British terms in Google. For example, on pages 3 & 4, the first two pages of Chapter 1, I have 6 annotations! If you are a Brit you will just have to put up with a wonderful, touching story and not have the opportunity to stretch your brain, since you will already understand the terms used. Maybe one day the book will be published for American readers who aren't puzzle lovers. Thank you, Julia Romp. Merry Christmas, Ben, Julia & George!
