Hi, I'm really interested in purchasing a Greek copy. Could you point me in the right directions? Thanks!

Very nice. Thanks for the post. I've been trying to figure out why there are differences between the British and American versions.

Very nice. Thanks for posting. I've been trying to figure out why the spelling and vocabulary changes in the British version, since kids can pretty easily understand American English, here in Europe.

You also have some Italian ones, nice! I wish I had an extra copy that I could send you, but, as the Italian translator, I only get 2, and I always give the extra one to my nephew and nieces. Now that I'm getting a grand-child I should ask for a third copy in the contract, and maybe a fourth one for you!
