How To Catch a Dragon (Albie) by Caryl Hart
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
My 5 year old daughter is a massive Albie fan. Having devoured all four previous books, I was thrilled when I spotted How To Catch A Dragon and we settled down to read it together. However, as we read through it it soon became clear that it isn't quite up to the same brilliant standard of How To Grow A Dinosaur and Supermarket Zoo.

The story is predictable and bland, with none of the Albie sparkle to set it apart. There's inconsistency in the character naming (Sir Cuthbert Clinkety-Clank is alternately referred to as Sir Cuthbert or Sir Clinkety-Clank with no apparent logic behind the choice, which could be confusing for younger readers), and, most frustratingly of all for… Read more

Some bands churn out new records like there's no tomorrow and launch each one with a dizzying amount of fanfare. On the contrary, Silver Sun have slipped out their first studio record since 1995 with barely even a word. I've been an avid fan of the band for ten years, but `A Lick and a Promise' only reached my consciousness thanks to the heads-up of an old friend who introduced me to them in the first place.

It's impossible not to bemoan the fact that an eighteen year career has elicited only five studio albums and an astonishing lack of recognition from the general public. Fortunately, the quality of the band's work makes it just about possible to forgive them, and this latest… Read more
