The Awful Speller's Dictionary
The Awful Speller's Dictionary
by Joseph Jordan
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars I remember this book from my 1960s childhood. It ..., 10 Aug. 2014
I remember this book from my 1960s childhood. It belonged to my mum who was definitely an awful speller; there are a lot of family jokes emanating from her misspellings. The fact that it is arranged how you think the word is spelt is totally practical for checking that you have got it right or not.

3.0 out of 5 stars way too small, 28 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My guides love a good pinata at parties. This was for a sleepover event with a monsters theme and seemed ideal. We felt it was far too small for an event for 20 people and the pull string element was just a very safely boring way of getting into it, the fact that this was a pull string pinata was not noticed on the advert and was a surprise when it arrived. we did not even know sucha thing existed.

Terry Pratchett continues to hit the spot with his discworld stories. Long awaited but no disappointment. The societyof ankh Morpork decelops almost in parallel to our roundworld. So much fun yet to come!

Place to Live and a Place to Die
Place to Live and a Place to Die
by Laszlo Deutsch
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Familes at war during Yom Kippur, 3 Dec. 2009
The tale of several families during the events of the Yom Kippur war. How do we react and respond to a threat to our nation? What do we do and feel when loved ones die suddenly or you just do not know where they are and if they will ever return.
Very easy to read. A little dated now but still an interesting insight into a recent period I knew little about.
