I chanced across a DVD of this tale, and I was surprised to find something other than a Sci Fi by HG Wells. The DVD was fun so I was interested in reading the book and was well rewarded for my time.
Mr Polly's transformation from hum drum conformer to free spirit was fun to experience, and the process was both amusing and inspirational.
