This does indeed sound like a really interesting and enjoyable read. I hadnt heard of it until you mentioned it today but will definitley keep my eyes out at the library for this one. Any book someone calls quirky I tend to want to have ago at.


This sounds good - please remind us when it is out here!

Thanks for this, Karen - a copy is currently on my bedroom floor, and may soon be elevated from this position! I, like the other Simon, am attracted by the word 'quirky'... as well as the delightfully sunny front cover, and the whole idea.


Much as I enjoyed reading this for its wry and simple charm, it was a surprise hit as an audiobook with my (then) 11 year old daughter on a long journey... (referring to a German edition, I read the original in French but the rest of my family isn't quite as fortunate as me on the language side!).
She's now agog for any of the Hector books; I think there are 3 or 4 now.


I look forward to them!
