The wide window by Lemony Snicket is the third and most adventure seeking episode. The story follows the Baudlaire children who are orphaned and shifted around avoiding Count Olaf who is after the money they have. This story describes the hardship vividly and puts you in the position of the 3 children.
They are in their uncles widow s care who is scared of most things and creating a sense of craziness which make thier struggle sound more terrible.
Overall it is a great book for adult and child alike. The description is great and makes it believable and then it is by an American author so the language may be confusing to British readers.

Bend it like Beckham is a funny film depicting the life of a sikh family. The female dominance is great and the mixture of great filming and music collaborating is fantastic. They point out the big cultural differances and you cant see the end plot halfway through the film like one made by Disney(Choke) or other filmakers that give away the plot so easily (splutter).
It has great jokes and the eventual plot is slowly pushed until you can comprehend (Last 10mins)
GREAT BUY AND WHERE BETTER THAN AMAZON.CO.UK
