|It's another Tim and the Hidden in Grime Illustrations special|
|and is it any wonder that the book is falling apart|
|as it dates from at least the 1970s when|
Wyndgate Secondary School was around
|which means thousands of kids, some of whom are probably grandparents now, must have read|
|all of Tim's mind-numbingly boring adventures|
The Pool by the Whispering Trees (at least that's what we think it says if you squint).
Yet more evidence that the school's assertion that its school books get 'damaged quickly by little fingers' is WRONG. This one is stamped Wyndgate Secondary School. Using our amazing powers of investigation, we discovered the school closed down in the 1970s and must have been given to our primary school in...God knows when. Shortly afterwards? Or perhaps the school scavenged it from a skip along with all the others in its reading scheme?
Or maybe I'm just really stupid and misheard. It's not a reading scheme, where children are encouraged to be lifelong readers by giving them access to up to date and engaging books, but in fact a germ breeding scheme. Now everything makes sense.
