5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasforia - A follow up, 23 April 2012
The Forsaken of Fantasforia - a follow up and continuance of The Magic of Fantasforia, just as good and getting better. The rhyme weaves it's way through the story and through your imagination. Is there somewhere to get a copy of the cover artwork ? This is a Fantasy that has not yet finished it's telling so I'll be on the lookout for the next outing for Percian and his sister.

5.0 out of 5 stars Billy Gooner - Growing up with Arsenal, 13 Feb. 2011
This book was bought with my Grandson in mind, he's still too young for it currently but you can never start them early enough can you? Having said that, and of course having read the book I was taken back to my first attendance at a football match, the walk to the ground, the street sellers and the huge anticipation about the game itself. My son, on being allowed to read it, then said it reminded him so much of his first trip (with me of course) sparking memories of "being allowed to walk in the road" because of the crowds you understand, the smell of the hotdogs and police horse's "as high as a house". All in all a marvellous book and one that has the ability to involve the reader in a similar way to which "Fever Pitch" has for older readers.
I would recommend this for those youngsters being taken to the match, whether it's their first or one of many, as it will strike a chord for all and help live or relive the atmosphere that is so special at football matches, the atmosphere that you do not get when watching matches on the television.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boy Bastin tells it like it was, 13 Feb. 2011
A treat that arrived in my Christmas Stocking (with only a little prompting). This is a book completely without any false story telling, or bigging things up. It covers the football life of "Boy Bastin" who made a huge impact at a very young age, achieving every honour available to a footballer before his 19th birthday and yet having the possibility of so much more being taken away. He was injured for an entire season aged 26 and at 27 "Mars Intervened" meaning he was unable to play when he would have been at his peak. He retired following the end of the 2nd World War having played only a handful more games. There is no hyperbole in this account and an honesty that makes refreshing reading. How things have changed, the manager is referred to throughout as Mr Chapman or Mr Allison and his own problems are not glossed over. A genuine, unadorned review of one of footballs great periods, thoroughly enjoyable and I recommend it to all. Thank You Father Christmas you were very kind.


The Arsenal Stadium Mystery
The Arsenal Stadium Mystery

5.0 out of 5 stars All Guns Blazing, 14 Aug. 2010
The book of the film, albeit I hadn't realised there was a book of this 1930's film until I saw it advertised, covers much the same ground (ha ha) as the film does.
Those not familiar with the story may find that the detective has familiar traits to latter day TV based detectives with an eccentric investigator and more simple assistant finally solving the mystery. The film has the benefit (for those interested - and who isn't) of a behind the scenes view of Highbury and walk on parts by the 1930's Arsenal team and manager.
An ideal accompanyment to the DVD of this film and for those wanting to find something different for the Gooner in their life (come on, everyone has at least one or two of those). This book name checks the 1939 team throughout and brings them to life for the modern supporter, and for a club with as much history as The Arsenal this means that those great players that surround the Emirates as part of the "Arsenalisation" programme are fleshed out a little more.
I expect Arsene would have solved it more quickly (and played the kids)

5.0 out of 5 stars Walk my way or Walk On - Songs to read this by., 5 May 2010
A charming book, all the laughter found in earlier "Attention all Shipping" and "Stamping Grounds" and based in places I've been to or am aware of which somehow makes it better. Charlie is a keen observer. I was suprised that there was no mention of those other Valley Boys (Charlton) when he walked "with" Owain Glyndawr through Wales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jonathan Toomey comes to the screem, 5 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The film of a much loved book. I read and re-read this to my children, especially my daughter, and it became a great family favourite. I didn't just buy one of these, we now all have them in various houses. A good adaptation and this retains the special feel of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Night Cinema, 5 May 2010
Back before multi channel TV, DVD's and Video's this is the kind of film that you only got to see a second time in the cinema, after the main show had finished and the place opened up for the late night early morning shows. I still laughed throughout, and not just at the performances but at the memories.
