I've just re-found my copy of that after our Great House Move (8 months ago today!). Perhaps I'd better re-read it before the builders come to do the damp proof course... Actually it's usually stories about animals (especially cats) dying that get me going, but, as with other GO-ers, 'Daddy my Daddy' in the film (though not the book!) is a guaranteed handkerchief-soaker.
