    Thumbs up The Wonder Weeks - how to get your hands on the Wonder Weeks book!

    Many of you have heard me rave of the Wonder Weeks for birth to 14 months which is faaaaaaantastic, so spot on...

    Edited 27th April 2008

    Finally, I have The Wonder Weeks in stock here after 3-4 years of trying!!!!




    They are so hard to get hold of, there is no Australian distributor so the cost is not as great as it used to be. Frans is working on it though!

    Does anyone know how much it ends up costing once you add on postage to Australia and convert into Aussie dollars?

    Thanks for the link Kelly. I've been trying to get it from quite a few of the bookshops around here, but no such luck - keep getting told its out of print!

    ok, I know its popular and hard to get, but $90?
    Amazon have 6 listings for this book today, and $89.99 US is the cheapest (with $175 US being the dearest)

    I got a copy recently. I bought it from a guy in the US. The book was $10 (brand new condition too!) and $12 to ship it here (US $).. whole thing worked out to be $25.80 in Aussie dollars...
    Amazon was a bit exxy so I got it from somewhere else.

    I also order my through A&R during the first week in Jan, and rang on Friday to find out what was going on - only to find out that there is no stock in America and the publisher is still deciding on whether to print another run or not.

    Gee, thanks for letting me know A&R, if i didn't call them i wonder if they would have ever called me?

    I know that this is coming a month after the last post, but i saw two copies in melbourne's 'readings' (carlton store) bookshop. they are selling for $55.
    had a flick through and want to get it, but as DD is almost 10 months, i'm not sure i'll get my moneys worth...maybe for no.2?!
