This review is from: Capital (Paperback)
This is one of my favourite books. It's beautifully written and the characters are completely engaging. It's a social commentary, and a story for our our age.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good purchase, 3 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a Christmas present for my husband. He loves it, and has brought his old records down from the loft. He is very fussy about sound, but does not expect modern hi-tech sound quality from a retro item. It is as described and fit for purpose, with a good old-fashioned record player sound. I like the compact size, and it's very pleasing to watch those records spin. I can't believe we'll be buying needles again after all these years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting image, 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this after seeing the film with live music (Andy Burrows and London Metropolitan Orchestra). My family have loved the original book for many years, and the sequel is equally fantastic. This poster is lovely. It's on decent paper, and the image good quality. It look great in a frame, and I haven't tired of looking at it yet. Delivery was quick, event though close to Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for dads too, 9 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Spot's Noisy Toy Box (Board book)
I bought Spot's Noisy Toy Box for my 2 year old granddaughter. She adores it, and so does her dad. The story is very basic, but the sounds link with the story, making it a lovely interactive experience for young children.

There Are Cats in This Book

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for sharing, 1 Jan. 2010
I work in a public library, and have used this book many times for story sessions with great success. Children from 3-8 enjoy taking part in turning the page to help the cats through their day.

The illustrations may seem dull at first, but the children soon become engaged with the cats and fully involved with the book. Somewhere on the internet there is a knitting pattern for Andre, Moonpie and Tiny finger puppets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazzy in the Jungle, 3 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Jazzy in the Jungle (Paperback)
What a pity this is out of print. It is typical of Lucy Cousins' cheerful, child friendly style, and suitable for 1-4 year olds. Jazzy is as cute as Maisy, and children will enjoy the flaps and jungle search.Hooray for Fish! (Book & DVD)

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and inspirational., 6 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: CSNY Deja Vu [2008] [DVD] (DVD)
If you know, respect and support Neil Young's views and preoccupations, and enjoy his music, then I recommend this DVD. It is an outstanding production, mixing interviews, live performance, rehearsals and news items in an intelligent, emotional and creative piece of work from one of rock music's greats. While there is some repetition of material from Young's Living With War DVD, there is an abundance of new material, making this a second, and probably last, phase of his anti-war project.

This is not a showcase for the reunion of four old rockers, delightful though it is to hear CSNY together again, still performing brilliantly. Buy this if you believe artists should use their work to highlight their political positions, if you enjoy intelligent and passionate music, and if you want to be moved and inspired.
