I like that story. It's rather like another Enid Blyton story called 'Sulky Susan', which I loved as a child. 'Sulky Susan' is even more surreal as Susan gets to meet her (potential) future selves.

Thanks for that info Anita.
Of course it means I have to go and compare the two stories straight away now!
