|Children of the Stones 1st edition|
Adam Brake, an astrophysicist, and his son Matthew try to unravel the mystery behind the peculiar behaviour of the inhabitants of the little English village of Milbury while investigating the ancient stone circle surrounding it.
A lot of the time I buy or read books based on the cover art. I'll often hang back on a book I'm really interested in until I can find the specific edition with my preferred cover image and so it's taken me several years but I've finally hunted down a 1st edition copy of the novelisation of this classic 70s kids TV show.
Obviously a novelisation is always going to retain a great deal of it's source material but this is a particularly slavish, though well written, one. The small illustrations heading each chapter even retain the likenesses of the core cast. This doesn't mean it isn't an enjoyable enough read though but it is one that is lacking in any sort of tension for anyone with a knowledge of the series.
