Compared to the HB, (above), it's smaller - more compact, although with a slightly higher page-count, (because the different size/format meant the internal layout had to be adjusted leading to a few extra pages here and there).
I'm really pleased with how it's turned out; hopefully, it will help bring JT to a wider audience - and might also come in handy for TOT fans who want to pencil any clues they find in the margins (but don't want to spoil their 1st edition HB).
For readers who first discover JT through the paperback there's good news: you won't have long to wait for part two of the story, as "Thyme Running Out" is officially release just one month later - and those coming to the book-launch will get their copies almost three weeks earlier!
I've prepared a special limited edition bookmark to mark the JT PB publication, and have plans for a blog-based competition. More news of that shortly.
