Product description

Review

'...enlarging, expanding and wondrously affecting. As general reading this book is perfect - it does not teach, it provokes thought and response and so educates in the fullest sense of the word.' Chris Brown, School Librarian --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
