5.0 out of 5 stars Just brilliant., 17 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant book. An absolute delight to read, illustrated throughout with beautiful and unusual prints (both from the authors and also from a wide range of other sources). It's a real education, with everything you could ever need to know about woodblock printing and providing real inspiration to get going. And to top it all... Incredible value. Totally recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful pictures and sweet story, 10 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pamela Zagarenski's pictures are just enchanting in this childrens book about a girl who can't sleep. The story is simple but cleverly does a full circle. It's a nice length, a style that is easy to read and conjures up images in your imagination, or you can just enjoy the wonderful pictures on the page!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was after!, 12 Sept. 2011
Bought these to re-lace my boots for a fancy dress party but hadn't been able to find any long enough in the shops. These were perfect and arrived very quickly (to boot...)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic lights, 12 Sept. 2011
These lights were incredible value for money. They look lovely. There are two separate strings which means you can set them up either side of the small solar panel... mine are draped around half of a tree at the bottom of the garden. They have been fine (despite the practically non stop wind and rain since I put them up) and the style of the individual lights is very simple and sweet. Operating switches straightforward (once I read the instructions)! Would recommend.

Brilliant book, lots of original ideas. It also has recipes for different bases for each cake, not just one recipe with different decorations. Great present!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!, 6 Feb. 2010
This is a lovely book full of recipes (I don't know there were so many chili rcipes!) as well as nicely written facts about the history of cooking with chili, 'hotness' of different types etc. Gave it away as a present but thinking of buying it again to keep!

Dressed to Grill: Savvy Secrets and Tempting Recipes for Girls Who Play with Fire
by Karen Brooks
Edition: Spiral-bound

4.0 out of 5 stars nice present, 6 Feb. 2010
This book is good fun and has lots of some nice recipe ideas. Dishes for different occasions, with salads and drinks too not just grilled meat. Lots of the recipes would make good meals to cook indoors with a conventional oven if if the rain put a dampener on the barbie. The names of the recipes are slightly contrived but clever all the same. Bought it for a friend as a present together with some cooking things.

2.0 out of 5 stars folds neatly... but not lightweight, 16 Nov. 2009
This table would be great as a standby for parties / barbequeues, nice and sturdy and simple to unfold. But if you want to carry it any distance it is very heavy and a bit unwieldy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best T-Rex, 31 Aug. 2009
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
I bought two of these dinosaur glove puppets to use while reading 'A Lovely Love Story' by Edward Monkton. They were perfect. They were intended for fun rather than educational value but you could use them for all sorts of learning play.

The glove puppets use all your digits - 4 fingers and thumb - which works brilliantly and means you can make the puppets do lots of actions and expressions. The fit might be a bit on the large side for a child to use but was just right for an adult. Also the seller might want to change the tag position - it was difficult to remove from the dinosaur heads.

They were brand new and good quality, the best value I found on the net, and arrived quickly. Overall a good buy and lots of fun!
