Five Red Herrings (A Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery)
Five Red Herrings (A Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery)
Price: 5.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Just my kettle of fish, 8 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can almost hear Ian Carmichael speaking Lord Wimsey's words as I read this, remembering a TV series decades ago; but what I really like is the comfy feel of a mystery woven by another excellent female writer in the thirties, and set in the beautiful Borders.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 8 Aug 2013
This review is from: Potette Plus Green (Baby Product)
I bought this some time ago for my (then) 2and a half year old granddaughter, after we had had a disruptive visit to a park where the toilets were a long walk away from the play area. I was quite shocked when it arrived that the "liners" were basically a half-nappy in a plastic bag, but the biggest problem was that the potty was just too small. For this reason, it is not even very effective as a toilet seat. It's a shame because the idea is a good one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neglected classic, 29 May 2013

This review is from: The Snow Goose (Hardcover)
A classic short story by Paul Gallico, which took quite a bit of tracking down. I am especially pleased with this beautifully illustrated book.
The tale of a young girl, an injured swan, and an unlikely hero. Read it if you get the chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Afternoon delight, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was introduced to Harley Quin when I worked at a tiny sub-branch library three decades ago. This story in particular is a special delight to me, as my Mam did have a harlequin tea set. Even I have to admit the plot is rather thin for the Queen of Crime, but the book is still a pleasure to read.

Quirky story with a gentle joke at the end - many years since I first met Tommy and Tuppence but they still hold their charm.

This review is from: My Baptism Book (Hardcover)
I ordered this for my granddaughter's baptism - at 2 years old she is too young to understand what the occasion is all about, but my prayer is that this lovely book will help her know and and feel the love of God.

4.0 out of 5 stars magic!, 8 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my 3 year old granddaughter as a prop for a dance show - she was a little disappointed it did not light up or make a noise like her fairy wand, but cheered up when her dance teacher said it was "perfect" for the "Harry Potter" sequence. The show was delightful!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Alfie, 8 April 2013

Bought for World book Day, but great to have the "Alfie" books brought to a new generation. Storylines nice and simple for little ones, illustrations attractive for all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dance and draw with the giraffes!, 8 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good accompaniment for the "Giraffes Can't Dance" book which my grandchildren and Toddler Group have already enjoyed. I would say some of the puzzles in this booklet are a little advanced for the age group likely to be reading the original book, but nevertheless a fun way to complement the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much wider age range than title suggests, 10 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this intending it for my 3 year old grandchild, but most of the prayers are not really simple enough for that age group. However, it is a lovely book with a good selection of prayers, beautifully presented and illustrated; a book that can grow with a child and become a famiy treasure. My only objection is to the title - I don't think it is suitable for a first book of prayers. I am tempted to keep it myself! but I will probably give it to my 9-year old for Christmas.
