The first and one of a number of cassettes released as part of the 'Discovery' magazine series this is an engaging little story that I owned as a child and still vividly remember huges swathes of dialogue from almost thirty years down the line after coming across a copy in a charity shop, priced at the princely sum of fifty new English pence. Good production/voice acting, a spiffy white cassette, it's a little short and by no means the best the series had to offer (that would be 'The Dragon's Mirror' in my opinion) but deffo worth a listen.
