A Second Book of Exciting Sentences
A Second Book of Exciting Sentences
by Alan Peat
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars The Modest Advancement, 31 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Alan Peat's sentence types can really boost writing in schools, but I'm not sure the sentence types on offer in this second book will move things on much more.
As usual, there are good example sentences and an element of differentiation too, which is useful.


I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban
I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban
Price: £5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Though Changed Forever, She Rises The Same But Stronger., 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Malala's story is both shocking and yet so full of promise that her intelligence and determination burst out from every page, leading you to strongly believe she is a world leader in the making (if she isn't one already!)
Highly recommended.

The Wild Things
The Wild Things
by Dave Eggers
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Wild Thing, 25 Dec 2009
This review is from: The Wild Things (Hardcover)
Dave Eggers does it again. I've loved all his novels from a Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius onwards. He seems to capture the essence of growing up and what it means to become the person you grow into. The book starts off lightly enough with Max trying to call for a friend and being followed home by an over-protective guardian, but soon gets very deep, magical and interesting. I loved this book and what it says about growing up. I've grown up in England but I can really relate to this book. Thank you Mr. Eggers.


Fabulous Frogs 2008 Calendar
Fabulous Frogs 2008 Calendar
by David McEnery
Edition: Calendar

3.0 out of 5 stars Frogs past their sell buy date., 25 Dec 2009
I bought this calendar for my frogaholic sister during Christmas 2009. I should have read the small print and noticed that this is a 2008 calendar which should probably have been pulped. The photos are excellent and I'm hoping my sister will see through the incorrect dates inside it and be able to appreciate the photos during the year. Makes for a lame present though, and I thought I'd best write this review before I get the feedback from her.Ho hum.
In essence, if you want the photos then buy the calendar, but if you want the calendar you'll need a Tardis or other time travelling device to make proper use of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harmony at home, 25 Dec 2009
I've had my Harmony 555 for over a year now and have used the software on various computers and used it for new equipment that I've been given. It is a brilliant remote control. One button switches on all the boxes you want under your tv set. Programming it takes a bit of trial and error but it is really worth the (slight) effort to get it set up the way you want it to. No typing in endless codes to find the remote tv code, just type in the model number and make of your gizmos and let the Harmony website do the rest.
It's also a stirdy piece of kit and the definite buttons make for a pleasurable experience.
All in all a best buy and well worth the expense to replace umpteen remote controls.


Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: Pop-up Book
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: Pop-up Book
by Lewis Carroll
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical Book, 5 Oct 2009
This is an outstanding book that children and adults of all ages will love. The story of Alice in Wonderland is brought to life with the most amazing pop-ups that seem to burst, impossibly large, from the page. Additional flaps and little story books help to tell the complete story. This is a truly book to treasure.

2.0 out of 5 stars Adapted eBook, 5 Oct 2009
When you spend over £200 on a eBook reader you would expect it to come with a mains adaptor, but no, you only have the option of plugging the precious book into the USB port of a computer. This doesn't always work well, as the computer can go to sleep and stop powering up the eBook.
This adaptor is identical to the one that comes free with the PlayStation Portable, which is cheaper than the eBook Reader. It charges up the book wherever there is a power socket, and it comes with a European connector as well, which is useful.
Possibly the least exciting thing I have ever purchased, but it does make the eBook a better companion on holiday than it would have been otherwise.

3.0 out of 5 stars light work, 5 Oct 2009
This is the official Sony E-Reader light. It isn't a Sony product and it has no Sony pictures or anything on the packaging to suggest it is anything other than an expensive clip on battery powered light. It comes with a spare set of batteries- a virtual guarantee that it's not very efficient and eats batteries like a very hungry person would, if they ate batteries.
The light itself is very bright and you need to angle it carefully to avoid excessive reflection on the matte screen of the E-Book reader. Overall, it does work but a good reading lamp is the best solution.
