Along the way, they get involved in all sorts of famous historical events.; "The calamity-prone stars of Nick Park's Oscar-winning Claymation films continue their side-splitting adventures in this new story. It's an ordinary day for Wallace, the fastidious inventor-handyman, and his dog-companion Gromit until Wallace discovers one of his slippers is missing. He crafts a Longlife Indoor Carpet Clog with Reinforced Everything as a replacement, but it's just not very comfortable. The only solution left is to aim the grandfather clock time machine back to where the missing slipper was last sighted. Wallace and Gromit believe they've set the coordinates for earlier that morning, 11:06 a.m. But alas, they zoom off to the year 1066 and land in the middle of the Battle of Hastings. Fans of the films and videos will be especially pleased by this return engagement, and newcomers will be quickly charmed as well." Does not fit safely in an International Priority envelope.

Spine faintly creased, covers lightly creased and edgeworn. The dark green rear cover is speckled white (a publishing flaw?) making the white text a bit difficult to read.

A few interior page corners creased, but clean; none loose. ; An omnibus edition of four of the Provincial Lady Diaries originally written from 1930-1940. They are witty portraits of life in a Devonshire village, in London, in the US, and finally at the beginning of World War II.;

Recommended by Holly H. of the ATS and AT email discussion list. "Diary of a Provincial Lady is my favorite book in all the world. This is the book I packed in my hospital bag when I was having a baby! It is absolutely enchanting...perfectly understated...quintessentially country English before the second world war.There is an emotional French governess, an arrogant titled neighbor, the silent husband, a procession of difficult servants, the talkative Vicar's wife, two not-quite-perfect but loveable children, and most of all, the Provincial Lady, who struggles through daily life with an overdrawn account and a much-needed sense of humor. Is there any better novel? 'Answer comes there none,' to quote the Provincial Lady." Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DE Stevenson email discussion group, says "E M Delafield’s Provincial Lady is one of my favourite literary characters."

'Delafield's domineering mother was the novelist Mrs. Henry de la Pasture and her father was an Anglo-French Count.
