Horrid Henry's Ten Terrible Tales Box Set (Horrid Henry)
Horrid Henry's Ten Terrible Tales Box Set (Horrid Henry)

1.0 out of 5 stars Not recommended., 10 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Horrid, horrible and therefore unconvincing. My 5 year old Grandsons were not impressed either. But then they are being brought up with an excellent set of values - something these books do not attempt to perpetrate.
The trouble with badness is - it's boring.
The books were put in the bin.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 **********!, 4 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This should have 10 plus **********! I highly recommend these garments. Mine is a joy to wear. The company contacted me to ask for my exact size and the fit is perfect. The cut is very feminine and makes me look great. The quality of the cloth is excellent too. I have waited to give a review until I had washed it - and it washes extremely well, keeping its shape with no need to iron.
I wear this as a dress, with leggings and also with jeans and boots.
The customer service was also excellent - no language problems, and the made to measure dress was with me in about four days. Tremendous when you think it was going from China to Scotland. (I usually wait weeks for items from anywhere Canada/ U.S./ England - I wonder why?)
I used to take my Laura Ashley dresses to be copied in the village in Hong Kong when I lived there, and buying this dress has brought back very happy memories.
I love wearing this and will certainly buy more.
Very many thanks.

This took some perseverance, but was more than amply rewarded at the conclusion.

Yes. You are not living in the real world unless you have one of these.

A marvellous company - extra special care from them.

This review by an academic musician and artist who temperamentally loathes housework and until now has always found something better to do than cleaning!


Lang Lang Piano Academy: mastering the piano Level 1 (Piano Solo)
Lang Lang Piano Academy: mastering the piano Level 1 (Piano Solo)
by Lang Lang
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointing. Waste of money., 17 Feb. 2015
Extremely disappointing. Although pianist Lang has given his name to this - and a great many exotic photos of himself ( !), this is actually a faber and faber creation using rather dull "composer's" extremely dull arrangements.

The important thing to realize is that Lang Lang was trained in the strict classical manner using all the tried and tested great pieces by the great composers - Bach, Mozart, Beethoven - and using the traditional studies of Czerny.

It is mystifying why Lang Lang, a great pianist and dedicated educator, should have allowed his name to be used for this series of books, when he could have given clear guidance in a publication of his own outlining the real way to achieve proper pianistic technique and knowledge of classical piano.

I do hope children are not going to be misled in the wake of this great star, by all the money grabbing of desperate hangers-on! (No offence intended).

2.0 out of 5 stars Write what you know!, 24 Jan. 2015
This review is from: The Secret Keeper (Paperback)
I always feel it is a pity that Kate Morton did not keep to what she knew - i.e. Australia. She fails to depict England.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull., 24 Jan. 2015
Garbled, unsystematic and dull. Best avoided. The lady is a horn player, not a pianist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good acting, lovely plot., 8 Dec. 2014
Very close to the book with some fine acting. Joanna Lumley really carries it extremely well. She could be Diana. Rather a jolt with the change of actors, especially Gus - but if you can overcome that this is highly recommended.
