I was born in Sittingbourne in Kent, though moved when I was 6 months old, so never went to that school, but was interested in seeing this article

http://www.kentonline.co.uk/sittingbo ... ic-takes-pride-of-126350/

A book found by a pupil that appears to have been signed by Roald Dahl became the star attraction at the reopening of a school’s library.

The copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, complete with a message from the author, was spotted on a classroom bookshelf at Grove Park Primary by an eagle-eyed boy a few months ago.

It has remained under lock and key ever since as copies can sell for hundreds of pounds.


But saddened by what the school has done with it, not good to do that to paperback :(

It is nice to see Tevildo, the Prince of Cats, and Huan and Lúthien as well, illustrated by Alan Lee

I have asked HC about this edition, will post if they are able to give any additional information on numbers, etc. , but this was 25 years ago and they may not have the records any more.

The book is very poorly listed at £7,999.99, would love to get that for my copy :)
