Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the Really Big Adventure
Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the Really Big Adventure
by Kristina Stephenson
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars First in the series about a knight with smelly socks, 25 May 2015
Sir Charlie, his cat Envelope and the good grey mare deceide they need to go on a big adventure.

Through scary sights, sounds and smells, Charlie and his friends bravely (or not so bravely) take us with him through a dark wood all the way to a spooky tower...

The drawings are very, very cute. There are some interactive pull outs/ups, some funny characters, and lots of times where Charlie shows scary things just aren't scary at all - he's a good role model.

An enjoyable series. I find it a little wordy at times (I shorten Sir Charlie's name to make it easier to read on occasion), but my son just adores this.

And since starting this series, we now each night have to say

"Goodnight, sleep tight, don't let the sweetle beetles bite." Adorable.

Very sweet pictures and an enjoyable start to the series about a young knight taking on the challenges of the world and winning.

One for ages 3-7.

The Great Nursery Rhyme Disaster
The Great Nursery Rhyme Disaster
by David Conway
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed up nursery rhyme fun, 25 May 2015
Other reviewers are right, that a child needs a good knowledge of nursery rhymes to enjoy this and get the most out of it.

Little Miss Muffet is tired of her rhyme, tired of the spider. She decides to find a rhyme that suits her better. But what will happen when she intrudes into other nursery rhymes?

It's a funny idea, though I expected a little more mayhem. My son knew almost all the rhymes (not really a fan of Ding Dong Bell myself), and enjoyed what happened to Miss Muffet.

The illustrations are unique - the blurb describes them as 'geometric', I like the shapes and colours, my son enjoyed pointing out characters he knew and guessing the rhymes from them.

This would be good for KS1 classes covering the topic in school, as well as children at bedtime who like a little silliness and a play on conventions.

One for children ages 3/4 to 7.


Topsy and Tim Sports Day
Topsy and Tim Sports Day
by Jean Adamson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.74

5.0 out of 5 stars Great episode about sibling rivalry and teamwork, 24 May 2015
My son's not yet in school, but was fascinated by the faces the twins take part in at the school sports day.

Topsy and Tim both think they are the fastest, and soon discover that being competitive doesn't always pay, but working together just might. The twins and their friends take part in obstacle courses, running races - and there is even a Mummy's race. They must work together to do well at the three-legged race.

Great story about rivalry and working together with the twins.

The activity at the end is to work out which of three children wins a race by finding out which line crosses the finish first.

Great book for ages 3-6.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attractive pair of latte glasses, 24 May 2015
Nicely packaged pair, good gift pack.

These latte glasses are of decent capacity, thick enough to hold a hot drink, but also delicate enough not to feel too heavy to lift.

They are easy to clean (we don't have a dishwasher, and you can easily reach down to the bottom to clean them without trouble).

The handle is of a good size for male or female-sized hands, and the glass is of quality made to last.

With thanks to the manufacturer for the sample product, sent for review purposes.
