And here's the Oliver and the Seawigs audio book! I think you can download it several places, but this BBC site has a very reasonable price. Of course, it's not as good as the printed book because you MISS ALL MY ILLUSTRATIONS, but it's a great companion piece, or for car journeys, or if you're visually impaired. I would make a terrible audio reader because I'd keep stopping to tell people about the pictures and go on and on.
And on another subject, here's a fascinating thing I found on the Internet, tweeted by Emma Kennedy: the art of fore-edge book painting. I occasionally did this to my school text books when I was a kid (no one could see, ha ha!) but I can imagine it might take off again, with all these beautiful gift books coming out, to rival digital books. You can read about it here and watch several videos.
