Stick Man by Julia Donaldson
Stick Man by Julia Donaldson
4.0 out of 5 stars good childrens book, 30 July 2014
This is a fun childrens book with adventure and exploration. The art work is as good as you would expect from a Julia Donaldson/Axel Schaeffer book with lively colourful pictures and plenty of details.
The writing is clever and imaginative, again being structured to rhyme and make the book easy to follow for young children.
The only reason i have given it 4 stars is because unlike in the gruffalo books the charactors do not come out so lovable or interesting, i found that my son is not as bothered by the predicaments of stickman as he is by the gruffalo or the witch in room on the broom.
Overall this is a good quality book for children.
Superman Animated Movie Collection [DVD] [2013] <b>DVD</b> ~ James Tucker
This pack is Brilliant Value. Of the 5 films none of them are terrible and any 2 are probably worth the price alone.
As a huge Batman fan the 2 crossover films are my favourites, however there is plenty of action and adventure in all of these titles for any DC comics fan.
The voice acting is again uniformly pretty good, and the DCU film universe has certainly built a strong foundation on the back of it's 2 biggest heroes.
Any fan of superman should appreciate this pack. 1 word of note it is rated 15 because one of the films is. The rest are 12 or PG, therefore it will be a judgement on what to let any children watch from the box.

The Proposition [DVD] DVD ~ Ray Winstone
This is a violent, desolate, merciless film. It is not a pleasure to watch and it is uncompromising about showing how brutal everything and everyone is. I love it for that, This is the kind of 'Western' that could only be made outside of the US, and shows the dewert of the Australian outback to be a harsh and almost alien realm that breeds harsh and alien men.
Ray Winstone plays the sheriff of a small outback village who is hunting a notorius family of outlaws. Having caught 2 of them the proposition of the title is offered to the middle brother to save his youngest brother by bringing in the leader of the family, his older brother Arthur. This sets in motion the events of the… Read more
