We would love you to take part by purchasing a print copy, as this will raise £1.40 for Mind. But we don’t think money should ever stand in the way of a child who wants to read! That’s why we’ve made a free PDF copy of the book available which can be read on a computer or tablet.

Download the free PDF here or use the button below to order a print copy.
