Jan van Haasteren -  The Winter Fair Jigsaw Puzzle (1000 Pieces)
Jan van Haasteren - The Winter Fair Jigsaw Puzzle (1000 Pieces)
Price: £9.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Adult puzzle requiring concentration., 10 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is another good picture puzzle in the series. Frustratingly it took 3-4 adults the whole Christmas period to complete it, so it became a bit of a headache I would say. Too difficult for the children age 11-12 who gave up after 5 minutes and did not return.

Colourful, well presented good quality book. A is for ... B is for ... etc. I am not sure which age group it is for; there is not enough factual substance in it for adults, but it is not entirely childish either. I will give it to an Ethiopian family and perhaps they can present their country in a happy light with it and it will start a more detailed conversation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful rendering of Cinderella, 3 Jan. 2014

I first saw this film in Norway where it is played every Christmas Day on the TV. A quite delightful spunky Cinderella who traps her Prince by playing tricks on him in the snowy landscape.

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.36

3.0 out of 5 stars Good yarns but difficult language, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The stories are great and suitable for perhaps 4-8 yr olds but the language is suitable for 10 yr old to adults.therefore I could not give it as a present as I had intended. Sad, perhaps the audio book would be easier so that stumbling over archaic words would not spoil the flow of the story.


A Jumbo Book of Board Games (Viking Kestrel picture books)
A Jumbo Book of Board Games (Viking Kestrel picture books)
by John Astrop
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A much loved book., 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book to play with my children and their friends 30 years ago and it was played with much joy. Since then it has travelled with me whenever I visit them and their children and is sadly missed if I forget it. The dragon game and the snakes and ladders are quite genius. Amazingly the book is still pretty much whole but the answer is to get another book of course, for the future

4.0 out of 5 stars A spatial puzzle to play, alone or with another, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good if you have a puzzling mind for adults or children over 8, to play alone or with one or two. It could be played on a journey. Solidly built, large parts are just a little stiff to manipulate, increasingly difficult targets to achieve taking us perhaps 30 minutes to complete at expert level.

3.0 out of 5 stars An historic tale of woe, 21 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cathedral of the Sea (Paperback)
I am struggling to get through this book. It probably does reflect the hardships and injustices of the period and endurance of the people but it is a long book and I can't think there are going to be any humorous or lighter moments coming up to enjoy.
