Garth Pig and the Icecream Lady (Picturemacs S.)
Garth Pig and the Icecream Lady (Picturemacs S.)
by Mary Rayner
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A horror story for young children!, 15 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A terrific story with the Pig Family. I was delighted to get this second-hand as it has been out of print for ages. Once again, the wolf in disguise tries to capture Garth pig -this time posing as an ice cream lady.
After an exciting chase, his brothers and sisters rescue him.and they do eventually get an ice cream. A great story to warn about 'stranger danger.' How I wish they would reprint the whole series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great idea from Kelpies, 21 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The opening parts of three excellent children's books .
Having read the beginnings, you'll know if you want to buy them.
Personally, I'd have been sceptical about the idea of Robot Chickens taking over Aberdeen, but once I'd read the start I just had to know the rest.
A brilliant idea, thank you Kelpies!

5.0 out of 5 stars A light in my darkness, 8 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got one of these a few months ago and liked it so much I bought one for the other room. I like to see the time if I wake up through the night, this is ideal. Small case, large numbers, dimmable if needed. A good loud alarm too, should it ever be required, which as a retiree it hardly ever is. (Bliss) recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not welcome in the hutch!, 8 Oct 2014
Bright, nicely made, well packed and quickly delivered. So, why only two stars? Our guinea pigs are terrified of it! Even after nearly two weeks they not only won't nibble it, they won't go in any corner we put it in. So, have taken it out, and will offer it to a friends rabbits and see if goes down better in that hutch. Pity, because it looks lovely!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a nibble of choice!, 8 Oct 2014

Sadly, our guinea pigs ignore these!
Nicely packed, arrived promptly, but of no interest whatsoever to Snowy and Snuffles.
Perhaps other species might fare better?

This review is from: Peck Peck Peck (Paperback)
A marvellous rhyming story with deceptively simple illustrations. I read it to my grand-daughter tonight.... Then again...and one last time. Nice that is the little boy and Daddy woodpecker in this story. So often it is just mummy!
As he becomes better and better at pecking, there are more and more holes to stick little fingers through, and lots of vocabulary building as the child recognises the pecked objects. A lovely happy ending as the tired little woodpecker settles down in his nest, and Daddy kiss-kiss-kisses him to sleep. I suspect that this is one we will soon know by heart.
Really recommended.


Mrs. Pig Gets Cross
Mrs. Pig Gets Cross
by Mary Rayner
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Please re-print these classics!, 8 Oct 2014
This review is from: Mrs. Pig Gets Cross (Hardcover)
I've had my copy for about fifteen years, and have read it to countless classes of children and several visiting ones. I love the Pig family, and all the characters are recognisable -the harassed mother, the sensible big sister, the somewhat indolent Daddy Pig.... But they all love and take care of each other.
This collection is another delightful look into the chaotic family life.
How I wish I could buy new copies of the whole lot -especially Garth Pig and the ice-cream lady!

Incredibly cheap stick on moustaches bought for a drama club farce. One use is all they'll last but at only about 20p each, what more can you ask!?

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty, cheap, but not durable, 7 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty little buttons, very low price indeed, but if you use them to decorate a garment -which I did - be advised that the colour fades a lot. But at that price not really any wonder.
