Really lovely watch. Had to take a couple of segments out of the chain to adjust for my son's narrow wrist ( costing us another £7), but otherwise happy.

This review is from: Snowball (Hardcover)
I bought this book, as I had read Jessamy by Barbara Sleigh to my daughter and loved it. This is a much simpler story, begun when two children discover a snowball between their two snowman and snowlady(the Snobles), and keep it in their fridge to show their mother. The snowball becomes a little snowbaby(!!!Ahhhh) who gets the children into various adventures. It's very cute, and an enjoyable (and quick) story to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jessamy, 16 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Jessamy (Knight Books) (Paperback)
I read this book years ago, bought second hand at the time, and returned to it several times as a child. Now I have the pleasure of reading it to my daughter,(aged 7) and she is captivated by the story, imagining her own version of the characters, especially Kitto. The enjoyment of imagining the world of pre-WW1 England without the frantic pace of today, coupled with an enchanting story makes for interesting and relaxing bedtime reading. Enjoy!

Adventure Series: Valley & Sea Bind-up: AND "The Sea of Adventure"

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The Valley of Adventure, 17 Mar. 2010

We love Enid Blyton!!! I grew up with her books, and I am so pleased to be sharing them now with my daughter.
These editions stay true to the original with all the adventure and characters, and the valley of adventure is one of my favourites - the imagery of the beauty of the valley and its waterfall have reamined with me since I first read the book. Enid Blyton also touches on the history of WW2 with the hiding of an abandoned community's treasure, hinting at those folk who carried on believing the war was still going, despite its being finished years before.
A jolly good read, with lashings of ginger beer!!

This review is from: Little Albatross (Paperback)
Michael Morpurgo is a brilliant children's writer, combining true to life events within a fictional framework. Little Albatross keeps you on the edge of your seat for the survival of both the baby and its parents, and given that a real albatross dies on the end of fishing lines at the rate of about one every 5 minutes, then this is clearly an important topic not to be neglected.
Thankfully in the story, all three creatures survive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mr Meddles Bicycle, 17 Mar. 2010

Being a fan of Mr Meddle, I bought this for my daughter. She loves Enid Blyton books - always a good story - and this one fit the bill. It would have been nice to have had a few more Mr Meddle stories - there was just the one in the book, but she's happy, so that's fine!
