First Impressions

July 19, 2002

This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a book that ends with the escape of a pterodactyl:

"Mr Hungerton, her father, really was the most tactless person upon earth, a fluffy, feathery, untidy cockatoo of a man, perfectly good-natured, but absolutely centred upon his own silly self."

The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's voucher and the closing date is July 23.

Entries, including postal address, should be sent to
