Johnny Nothing by Ian Probert
Johnny Nothing by Ian Probert
The first thing you notice about this book is the pictures at the beginning of each chapter. Each is a full colour landscape-orientated scene or portrait. They really are works of art.

I read this story with my 7-year-old daughter over several bedtimes. She always wanted more. This is because the plot is easy to get to grips with and is in itself gripping too. There is a clear villain so she was rooting for the hero of the story, Johnny Nothing. I would say that with a little bit of language, and most of the adults in the story being smokers (although the author keeps reminding the readers not to smoke) I had to edit it a little bit, and it would be more suited to its audience if… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving it, 13 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am loving this lawnmower at the moment. Admittedly the one I had before was old so most lawnmowers would have been an improvement but this does an excellent job on my lawn.

The first thing I needed to do was put it together and that was relatively easy to do even if the instruction book put most of the steps into one diagram. I had it together within half an hour. I read some of the other reviews on here first and they complained of the plastic breaking when tightening it, but the diagrams clearly say to do it with your hands, not with tools, and I had no problems with the plastic breaking.
