"Silverfin" ESL Edition

Tonight I visited Dymocks book store in Camberwell to pick up a new addition to my book collection.  A week ago I'd ordered an ESL (English Second Language) copy of Charlie Higson's young James Bond adventure "Silverfin" and earlier today I was alerted my special order had arrived.

The book is only 64 pages so it's pretty thin.  Published in 2021 by Penguin in the UK, it's basically a savagely abridged black-and-white graphic interpretation of Charlie Higson 2005 novel.

I've checked the web and this appears to be the only book in this series so far, but hopefully more will follow.

Finally, I could have easily ordered the book from an on-line book site however it was great to have supported a family owned business instead.
