NOT THE WHOLE STORY

Any additional comments?

This is a story from a cassette tape which I had as a child. The version here is only half of the tape. It's a lovely, enjoyable story which helps teach children the commutative law for times tables (that you can say them either way round) and Fry's reading is fantastic. But as it stands the story ENDS HALF WAY THROUGH. If the version were complete I would give it a much higher review.
