    Hi, I am needing this book for English in the next couple of weeks. Does anyone have any idea where I can get it? It's not available on amazon, ebay, waterstones or whsmith. It doesn't even appear on his own website!
    Can anyone give me any suggetions as to where it might be available? Do you have a copy I could buy off you?

    Thank you

    I had a look on ABE books for you, they are 2nd hand booksellers, but they only had the story in a rather expensive compliation of stories.
    Can I suggest your library, because they will be able to check around all your local libraries and if available order it for you to borrow.. (at least this is what my library does!)
    Looks like it is out of print. How annoying!

    Yes, that was my first stop. No joy. I tried the library and they have 1 copy, so I'm hot footing it down there!
  5. Hi have you tried the book depository? www.bookdepository.co.uk I use them in preference to Amazon, free delivery, very reliable.
    I'm using this book for Y4 issues and dilemmas along with Colin Thompson's Live Forever book and Roald Dahl's Danny.
  6. I have got it as a audio thing that I can email you - got it from somewhere that was giving that text with audio story free - found the link on here somewhere that promoted it.

    http://www.imagesdoc.com/gammebox/adventure_video.jsp It was this company - Sams Duck was the free text they sent me

  7. and you can download the audio version from there too

  8. I used it from Hamilton Trust, think I've still got it saved on my stick - leave your email address & I will forward a copy

    Many thanks,
  14. Hi!!

    Is there any chance you could email me a copy also??


    Thanks :)
  15. You can download the audio version here: http://www.bayard-magazines.co.uk/gammebox/adventure_video.jsp

    I got it a while a go with a free copy of the text, but looks like they have run out of stock!
  16. I know this was a long time ago and is probably a long shot but any chance you still have that copy of Sam's duck? You would be a lifesaver!
