Ribsy (Avon Camelot Books) by Beverly Cleary

It's 8pm, and I have just caught my 6 year old son reading Ribsy under a blanket with a little book light. I couldn't be more proud. Yes, it's now dated a bit, but the story basics are the same; and whilst I read it as a kid, it is a joy and a treasure to have a new copy to pass on to my son. If you need help getting your little ones to discover the joy of reading for themselves, this is it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it., 30 Dec 2008
I was a big fan of the Cityboy column, and put this on my wishlist for Christmas. Fantastic read; yes, there's a lot of swearing, but working in London (or New York, for that matter) will do that to you.

When the other reviewers say "nothing new here," actually, to me, a lot was new. The flowcharts of perks and payoffs that could be drawn, all designed to swindle the average investor (that includes us not lucky enough to have a final salary public sector pension), really makes one lose sleep over their financial future.

Well-written, engaging style that had me laughing out loud and scaring my poor inlaws as I spent Christmas outside the M25. Couldn't put it down.

I'm impressed. I really am. Pink is turning into such an amazing artist and she has something to say - that's important, not fluffy, and relevant.

I wonder if she ever considered writing her songs as a form of therapy - particularly in Conversations with my 13 Year Old Self. It's just all too familiar even though our life paths will never cross.

She writes and sings from the heart, and while I bought the CD for the popular tracks on airplay, well, I'm just impressed with it on a whole. No filler here.
