Happy Feet - Black 3 Stripe - Slippers Happy Feet
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I bought a pair of green & grey happy feet slippers from the official web site over three years ago, and I'm still wearing them now.

First thing I noticed is that they are a little furrier than my previous ones. Still the same great quality and appearance you'd expect from Happy Feet. The soles have grips (which are the words 'buyhappyfeet') and are made from 1 inch thick foam. This will wear down over time, particularly on the heels, but they're still comfortable.

An Interview with J.K.Rowling by J.K. Rowling
So why only 3 out of 5?

Firstly, it's short. Only 74 pages in all, and the text have been formatted with line spaces. Although, the book is called "an Interview," I would have thought it would be a little more substantial. The interview questions are fundamental questions you would ask an author regarding his or her books, growing up, inspiration, their interests, etcetera. I would have expected something more insightful. It's not all bad news, considering the books was published in ten years ago, which can seem like a lifetime ago considering the development of the further books, and naturally the films, it's not a bad read. Most of the questions I've read/heard before… Read more
