Porky Pies

5.0 out of 5 stars Porky pies is fab!, 5 Nov 2010
This review is from: Porky Pies (Paperback)
I bought this book for my son who is hard to encourage to read. He's more' can't be bothered' than dyslexic. However, he really enoyed this book, loved the 'porky pies' and wanted to read to the end all on his own. I am going to buy the Mum Manager for him too as I keep threatening to take over his football team. I'm sure that will be absolutely great too!
Keep it up Suzi!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mum Manager Rocks!, 4 May 2008
This review is from: The Mum Manager (Paperback)
I know first hand how hard it is to get youngsters, especially boys reading well but this high interest, low difficulty book will certainly help. This is a fun packed enthralling story that youngsters will love. What a dilemma when your mum takes over your football team and knows NOTHING about football but lots about hairdressing and yoga! Not surprisingly the boys try to get advice from a top footballer with unexpected results. I love the characterisation, expecially the central characters Leroy, Toby, Sharon and Rose. There are lovely touches of humour and humanity. An excellent debut from an author who really knows her job and her audience. Can't wait for more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blackberry wine-a nostalgic ,cheeky little number!, 10 April 2006
This review is from: Blackberry Wine (Paperback)
I have read and re-read this book ,thoroughly enjoying it afresh each time. Don't be put off by the unusual beginning with bottles of wine seemingly talking to one another. Read on. The story starts with a struggling author,Jay Macintosh trying to recapture his early literary success. There are many flashbacks to his lonely childhood and his friendship with Jackapple Joe,a fantastic character. Jackapple Joe is an elderly ex-miner,dedicated to his garden and his specials and full of mystical, homespun wisdom. Jay feels driven to leave everything behind to live in France where Joe's influence and alchemy is still potent and where he helps Jay resolve his struggle.
A lovely book, told with great skill and poignancy. I suppose it's a modern day "Cider with Rosie" but so much better than that. Delightful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Partners- Review, 8 April 2006
I am the mother of a girl who has a lovely pony who could misbehave and rear and bronc on occasions, especially in new surroundings. We were disatisfied with the traditional advice we received from some instuctors that he was just being "naughty" and needed "whacking" on a regular basis. My daughter was told to not to be afraid to hit her pony and was even given demonstrations about how to do it as she was not firm enough! However, this did not work and the pony started to become worse and more unpredictable.
It was most refreshing to read Kelly Mark's book which follows Monty Robert's approach but also widens this into other areas. Slowly but surely my daughter's pony has calmed down and trusts her. He is much happier and his behaviour has dramatically changed for the better. Another horse whose owner we know, asked an instructor in natural horsemanship skills to help box their mare. All the whipping and hitting in the world did not work but the horse now boxes easily after just one session using these techniques.
Well done to Kelly Marks for this informative and readable book. There is a quiet revolution going on out there and long may it continue!
