…well, one shop anyway.
The official publication date of “Time Travelling With A Hamster” is December 31, but at least one shop – thank you Waterstone’s, Kensington High Street – have received a bunch of them already and decided to put them out in the store, sandwiched – handily – between two David Walliams books.
My son looked up from his phone (itself a good sign) and said, “Dad, your book’s in the shops!”
“Eh? How do you know?”
“Izzy’s just Snapchatted me a picture of it in a bookshop!”
“What? Let me see, let me see!”
“It’s Snapchat, Dad. It’s gone already.”
Yeah, I knew that.
Anyway, I tracked it down to the said branch of Waterstone’s and set off to see for myself. Is that a bit sad? I don’t care.
I considered lurking to see if I could spot anyone actually buying one, but it seemed a bit creepy, so all I could do was take a picture and leave. Smiling broadly, obviously.
