This weeks after-work charity shop finds included four DVD’s (The Hitchhicker’s Guide To The Galaxy, The Big Lebowski, From Hell and Judge Dredd) one CD (The 80s Movie Album), and one book (Tales of Mrs Hedgehog).
This lovely, large hardback book “Tales of Mrs Hedgehog” was produced by St Michael in 1979. This version was reprinted in July 1981. The stories were by Susannah Bradley and illustrations by Kate Lloyd-Jones.
It’s been many years since I read The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, but I’ve never seen the BBC TV series from 1981.
The Big Lebowski, From Hell and Judge Dredd cost £1.00 each. Judge Dredd was still sealed and From Hell was old school ex-rental.
