Our customer reviews

For those planning to buy several Clarice Bean books, please be aware that, 'My Uncle is a Hunkle' and 'Guess Who's Babysitting?' are the same story! 'My Uncle is a Hunkle' is the British publication. Many, many words in the American version 'Guess Who's Babysitting?' have been changed, 'telly' to 'TV' but it's the same story. So don't get tricked, like I DID!show more
