My Kitchen Table: 100 Cakes and Bakes by Mary Berry
5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking book!, 26 April 2014
Great little book with a lot of basics all in one place. I am a Delia fan but for baking, you can't go wrong with Mary. The book doesn't stay open easily though, may be better ring-bound but that doesn't take away from the content in any way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray for Mr Gum!, 7 April 2014
Trying to get my 7 year old son interested in any books that weren't dinosaur encyclopaedias or other factual books has been quite a challenge. Not any more...

Funny Stories for Six Year Olds by Helen Paiba
2.0 out of 5 stars Funny for some..., 7 April 2014
These stories weren't the hilarious riot I expected. In fact the first story I read to my son (trying to get him away from all things dinosaur-related) was incredibly boring, even for him. We didn't read any further because he groaned every time I got the book out, which is never a good sign! Some might find it funny, but we didn't so I suggest you try the library first before you part with your cash. Sorry...
