I love having Sparta Books as my local book shop. Staff is friendly and helpful. The store is quaint and stocked with relevant, current and popular book options. My kids and I love the children's section in the back too.

Awesome experience and probably the best way to get the most out of a one day visit to the studio/theme park. Other parks should take notes!

Unfortunately the book is no longer in print and I have no copies left. The author has passed away and no additional books were printed. I'm sorry we can be of no further help. Best of luck in finding a copy.
