Through a Glass Darkly (Parish & Richards 10) by Tim Ellis
2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 27 April 2014
I, like other reviewers of this book, have found this instalment of P & R disappointing. There are far too many story lines, it becomes confusing trying to keep up. Stretching parish's history over 10 books, and probably more, is beyond ridiculous! I really don't care any more. It's become pointless and not even vaguely of interest.
However, for me, the biggest problem with this grisly tale is the character of Michelangelo.the name is a cliche to start with! There is no such thing as a hair lip!

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST book!, 2 Nov 2013
I love this book! I bought it for my granddaughters and we have spent many hours pouring over the pictures, and weaving new stories and adventures. It is so good for all sorts of educational areas including literacy. I have now put the book into a play area where the children also love it. It's a great tool for helping potentially vulnerable children to open up while they talk and use their imaginations. Fantastic!
