= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars

My children have absolutely loved this game. It's engaging and can be played against the computer. It's so good I have played to many times on my own after the kids have gone to bed!

5.0 out of 5 stars favourite King Book, 28 Aug. 2010
This review is from: It (Paperback)
I read this book years ago an loved it. Of all the King books I have read this has to be my favourite. The film of the book only concentrates on the basic story line- there is so much more to the story in the book. Even if you have seen the film, you wont regret reading this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars best crochet book, 28 Aug. 2010
This is an excellent book. I consider myself to be just past the beginner stage in crochet and I have been able to make so many projects already using the techniques and patterns in this book. I own quite a few crochet books and this has to be one of the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Words of wisdom, 20 May 2001
This is a very informative and entertaining book; not just for parents who need advice with specific problems but also for parents who are keen to avoid problems before they arrive. The author covers all aspects of successful child rearing in an absolutely no-nonsense, down-to-earth manner. (It's definitely not full of any 'latest-fad', extreme psychoanalyst nonsense!) Surprisingly, this was an extremely entertaining book; the author has an excellent sense of humour, which combined with his experience and ability to observe and understand our little ones' behaviour results in some classic examples of observations. Every topic you could imagine (and a few you didn't think of!) is included. Multiple solutions are offered to problems and all are workable and straightforward. The wisdom this man imparts is impressive but he maintains a modest stance. He does not lay blame and guilt on any parent's doorstep, but understanding and some damn good suggestions. There are no perfect parents, just many of us who want to do our best for our children and this book is a good friend. It's supportive, only slightly critical in a constructive manner, full of sound advice within your limits to achieve, experienced, humorous and available. Unfortunately children don't come with an Owners' Guide, this is the nearest and best you' find. Happy parenting!

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential book for parents, 16 Dec. 2000
The book is a must for all parents who want to share the experience of helping their child to read and write. The book advises on the correct pronunciation of letters, has clear pictures which show you how to form the letters correctly and introduces the characters (each letter has it's own name and personality). My child loves the Letterland Characters and with the aid of this book I am able to share with her the very important first steps of learning to read and write in a fun and interesting way with confidence. Many schools use Letterland and if your school is one of them this book is essential for you.
