    How funny, I’ve just read this myself! But I haven’t gotten around to reviewing it because I am a lazy blogger :P I also read it because of the 50th anniversary – I didn’t get a fancy hardback (sniff ;) ), but I had the chance to visit a commemorative exhibition in Chester, and that inspired me to pick it up. Like you I enjoyed it a whole lot, but not quite as much as The Owl Service, I have to say ;)

    I’ve not read any of his books but do love a good old fashioned fantasy so this one may well find itself on my bookshelf sometime soon ;)
