Description

The Mellops Go Spelunking

Meet the Mellops: the world's most adventurous family of pigs. When Mr Mellops' golf ball rolls down a crevice, the family's natural response is to prepare a caving expedition. No, pigs can't fly ... but they do go caving!

The award-winning author, Tomi Ungerer, wrote and illustrated The Mellops Go Spelunking over fifty years ago, but copies are long out of print and, if a second-hand one can be found, they exchange hands at high prices. We are delighted, therefore, that Phaidon has published a new edition and that we at Wild Places have it in stock.

This is a delightful hardback book filled with captivating drawings that all cavers, young and old and not-yet-been-underground, will enjoy.

The Mellops Go Spelunking was reviewed in Descent (247).

As with all items on our website, the price includes postage and packing costs.

STOCK ALLOCATION

Our goods for advertised for sale with postage costs included; selecting the destination other than the UK will alter the price, to take into account the increased carriage charges. 

If stock is limited, for example with a single copy of a second-hand book, it will be assigned to UK stock. If you require posting to an address outside the UK, you will not be able to place this order, even though stock is available. We regret this, but the software has limitations. If this is the case, please contact us to enable the options you require.

Please see our FAQs relating to deliveries, and the Delivery page linked from the bottom of each page, before placing your order if time is an important element for your order.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EU CUSTOMERS

On 1 July 2021 the EU removed all exemptions for tax and customs duty on low value items posted from the UK to the EU, meaning that although VAT is 0% on books and magazines in the UK, VAT is charged within the EU and the tax (potentially plus a handling fee) now apply to all orders to the EU.

We are unable to post any items to the EU with VAT or other duties prepaid; as a small company, it is a long way outside our abilities to engage with an agent to do so. All items are therefore mailed as DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid). Ordering any item from Wild Places requires that you accept responsibility for paying the VAT applicable in your country and any other local charges on delivery.

To be clear: Wild Places will NOT cover any charges levied by your country; it is your responsibility to accept these when placing an order. We apologise for the situation, but it is outside our control. Refusal to pay charges upon delivery will not be accepted as a reason for refunding in full any returned items.

NOTE: Norway and Switzerland are outside the EU and orders will be filled as normal.
