5.0 out of 5 stars Trumps of fun!, 5 Aug 2013
Pumpas Grumpas is a delightfully entertaining book for children (and adults alike). It is full of wonderful description and superb illustrations that will appeal to all ages. As a teacher, I had the pleasure of seeing 35 kids roll around laughing to this story as I read it to them. Not only full of laughs, this story has a great message too. Highly recommended. I hope this emerging author has many more stories up his smelly sleeves!

With Divine Heresy this great list of achievments is added to. This is a fine debut album which emphasises the finer moments of this man's career and puts them all together in one album. Opening title track 'Bleed The Fifth' kicks in and gives you a great impression of what's to come. Brutal guitars, crushing vocals and pounding… Read more
