On the Twentieth Day of Christmas.....

My Tube Love gave to me

A copy of
Underneath the Underground: Further Tales by Anthea & Wendy Turner

Today is the last day to order from Amazon to get your pressies in time for Christmas, so the book above is the only one from the series available with a 24 hour delivery against it. "The only one from the series", I hear you cry. "You mean chirpy TV presenting sisters Anthea and Wendy Turner wrote more than one book about the London Underground?" It's true and they're really rather good!

Detail from Underneath the Underground

Underneath the Underground: Further Tales is the 2nd book of a series that chronicles the adventures of a group of mice who live on and beneath the tracks of the London Underground. But these aren't the dirty mice, we know and er.... hate, but little cartoon characters who wear nice clothes and have names like Neil, Nigel and Nancy.

Underneath the Underground by Anthea & Wendy Turner

Just in case you think it's a move for the sisters to break into the children's book market (which it probably is), the series is dedicated to The Humane Research Trust, a registered charity which raises funds to develop alternative methrods to the use of animals in medical research. So you can buy these books and feel you're doing your bit for charity too!
