    A meal with James Currey, grandson of the author, one of the people who the stories were written for. This level includes a standard copy of the book and a CD.
    The meal will be for you and a guest at a mutually arranged time in Central London or Oxford, and you have to get there yourself but I'll pay for the (decent) meal and drinks. I will be there, and we'll see if any of the intro writers can make it.
    ***If you already have a signed copy pledged for and want to have a meal, send me a message so you don't lose it, as all 50 are accounted for and if you move your pledge, someone else will grab it. We can work something out.***
    If we can manage it, we'll try and only have one or two meals for all pledgers so as not to drag James around to 5 different events, but you'll get time with him!

Includes a reply to one follow up email from you with queries and clarifications. One name in the thank you section. Add an extra book for £30 UK, £40 elsewhere.

Quentin Blake and Neil Gaiman in particular seem unlikely, but do check). There will only be 50 of these in total. Plus a thank you and a postcard.

    Write your own introduction to an Uncle book! You provide me with up to 1,000 words about Uncle - what it means to you, how you first encountered the books, anything related to the series - and I'll include it in the book (edited and proof-read, at my discretion). Text must be delivered within a month of the drive ending, or later only by prior approval. Includes a copy of the signed edition posted anywhere in the world, your name in the thank you section, and a postcard.
