1.0 out of 5 stars inaccurate historical information and badly written, 31 Oct 2013
This review is from: J.K. Rowling (Kindle Edition)
We agree with the previous reviewer but felt the inaccuracies made it annoying (eg by the time Rowling joined Brownies they didn't have to tie ties any more, and I doubt if she had to wear school uniform - most state infant and juniors schools didn't then. The comparisons between her mother's cooking and that at Hogwarts were irritating, fortunately we borrowed this from the local library so hadn't spent any money on it!

5.0 out of 5 stars easy read and funny to boot, 15 Sep 2012
This is an easy read, with some serious and some very funny episodes. I had a late night finishing it as I did not want to put it down.
Well written. If you can find more stories Dr Rosemary, please publish more like this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Xacti two years on, 29 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was intiialy hugely pleased with this camera, though a couple of minor niggles were imediatly apaprent, the on off switch is impossible to operate with gloves on and is very slow to get the message. Also, the zoom is rather fast so its very difficult to get any control while filming.
Much more seriously is at just two years old the internal circuit which joins the screen to the body has catastropicaly failed. Careful investigation shows this to a be a design flaw which Sanyo with their commitment to continuous improvemnt are not very interested in. Since the same hinge design is used in severel models, this is an expensive disposable camera at best. BTW I was quoted more than I paid for the camera to have it repaied by the official repair shop. Beware!

5.0 out of 5 stars A reminder of what the church is all about, 4 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This down to earth book, which had be laughing out loud on several occasions, is a timely reminder of what the church is here for and how to be relevant in the current age, based on practical experience. Very useful reading, not too much jargon, thought (and hopefully action) provoking.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect for little girls, 13 Jan 2010
Father Christmas gave this and Ruby the red fairy to my 5 year old. However my 4 year old is begging for the next installment and bed time story time has had to be extended to allow for this to be read to her. It is also inspiring her to learn to read too.
My 5 year old also wants to hear it but her bedtime reading is currently the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe so she is waiting until she has finished that to have this.

4.0 out of 5 stars My 23 month old loves it, 22 Jun 2006
My 23 month old daughter has been watching "Isabelle" for several months and it is a firm favourite. She watches it from end to end. She points things out to me in English but is now beginning to reply "bonjour" to the characters and I am happy that the information is going in. Just wish I'd bought the DVD not the video as it is on so much and I have a younger daughter who is not interested in TV yet. We also have the book which we use as well and she is getting the idea that there are different words for the same item in French.
