‘Reading this book is like returning to an old friend’

‘Reading this book is like returning to an old friend. I remember reading it as a child, and every decade or so since then – I’m sure we had it as an audio book we listened to in the car with our children . . .

Slightly Foxed have re-issued my old friend in a gorgeous new edition – their books are always a pleasure to read. Beautifully bound, with the original illustrations by C. Walter Hodges (the Roman watchtower on page 216 is really evocative of an abandoned outpost of Empire north of the Wall) . . .

I always feel better for reading this book.’
