5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Perfect for imaginative and creative play!, 15 Feb 2012

This review is from: KAPLA BA200 200 Box (Toy)
We gave a set of 200 blocks to our boys (4 and 2) who love to build the most creative and imaginative structures with it - anything from towers to boats, even horses... :) This is a wonderful toy that will keep children interested for years and years as they learn to build more complex structures and incorporate these into their other games. Can only recommend. 200 blocks are a good starting point, enough to start building interesting things at the beginning.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy but could be a weapon in little hands, 15 Feb 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This is a very nice model of concorde, with no wheels or nose to fall off. So very sturdy and almost impossible to break. The only caveat would be that its metal nose is very pointed and could be a bit like a dagger in little hands. I always keep a very close eye on my kids when they play with it. So overall, good but needs to be handled with caution.


World Cities and Climate Change: Producing Urban Ecological Security (Issues in Society)
World Cities and Climate Change: Producing Urban Ecological Security (Issues in Society)
by Mike Hodson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £24.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Interesting arguments, but excrutiatingly badly written, 19 Mar 2011
I bought this book because it presented a slightly different view of the climate change in cities agenda, looking at it from a sociological and political angle. The arguments presented in the book are interesting, but it is so badly written that I find it almost unreadable. These guys are clearly technical experts in their fields, but they would have benefitted from a thorough editing job undertaken by someone who understands punctuation, grammar and spelling.
There are so many mistakes in the text, it is really irritating. The style is convoluted, which makes the - often simple - messages really hard to filter out.
Real shame, could have been a good book. But at present, it's not!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read!, 12 Sep 2009
This excellent book is nothing more than a description of fifteen hundred years of Celtic history - not two thousand, the title exaggerates. All three parts of the book, ancient, medieval and medieval/modern are good though my favourite part is the third and last on Arthur and his Round Table. Perhaps, in fact, even more interesting are the two appendices, one that explores a Celtic discovery of America and the other the historical origins of the legend of Arthur. Much can be said against both - if Arthur did not exist how could he possibly have created so many legends - but they are both entertaining. The dragons in Ireland was another highlight as was the Loch Ness monster. The introduction defending the notion of the Celts against all comers caught my attention and was the reason I originally bought the book.
