Our cover illustration is taken from Wake Up, Bear ... It's Christmas, Stephen Gammell, Heinemann, 0 434 94010 0, £3.95. We are most grateful to Heinemann for help in using this picture. We are also indebted to Raymond Briggs and Hamish Hamilton for the cover of Extra.
What better praise than an enthusiastic review from a child tester? 'I think this book is absolutely brilliant. I shall most probably look for another by Allan Rune Pettersson.' Aunt Frankenstein is involved in restoring her nephew's castle and salvaging the family name. There is a dead pan humour throughout that is readily recognised by children. Get in lots of copies!
