I picked my ears up when "McNair" was mentioned as the author of this book
as in my head it was "Hudson".

Sure enough Amazon lists Ian McNair 1995 but DF Hudson for the same title
"1993", though actually Hudson dates from 1960 not 1993 and includes
material (such as a series of pics of a boy in a pith helmet with a lion)
that must surely date back to the mists of the grammar school era.  (most of
TY's language books are much more up to date - 1980s and 90s)

And note different publishers - Hudson is Teach Yourself series (i.e. Hodder
in the UK, NTC in the US) while McNair is published by Nelson.  Surprised
they can do this as "Teach Yourself" is a registered TM of Hodder....
