5.0 out of 5 stars If you have a son who can read much better than his age, 11 Dec. 2014

This review is from: Just William At School (Paperback)
If you have a son who can read much better than his age, but you can't get anything suitably demanding from the school or the books for older children don't have appealing content, then this is for him. The language is quite hard (written in the 1920s when people seem to have expressed themselves more eloquently than now) and will certainly expand the vocabulary, but the silly stuff that William gets up to is just right for any fun-loving boy aged 7-13. My son was being given books at school on the reading scheme that were either written in simplistic, or just bad, language, so not stretching him at all. But then when I looked at modern stories for 11+ years old, I could find only horror or stuff about socially disadvantaged families. Why does the educational establishment think the average school boy (quite often with a mother, father, siblings and a steady home) wants to read or benefits from reading horror or about how a budding football hero discovers that his real father is actually his mother's ex-boss? The stories are quite old-fashioned, so your child will also learn how it was to be a boy 100 years ago, funny and very silly indeed.

This was a present for my 5 year old nephew, who apparently loves it and has worn it to school a few times already.

Lovely book. I read the small size version to my son when he was 5-6 but we lost it. So got this one to read to my daughter. She loves it too, but gets quite scared by the pictures.

This review is from: Quite Honestly (Paperback)
Quite quirky and interesting story, you could see it happening to someone. The style of writing changes as each character is withdrawn into themselves (in prison) and reflects their thought processes well.

Even my 11 year old son took up drawing when he got this. He liked it mainly because of it's title, but the pictures inside are also the right sort of ones for boys 6-12.

These are really good pencils mainly because they are so thick. They are comparable to the Crayola (short, fat) ones but in different, brighter colours. The Crayola ones are much cheaper than these though, but of course are half the length.

I bought these for school bake sales/international lunches when we have to provide a dish from our country and label it. They are cheap and will last years, there are so many.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is top quality, 29 Mar. 2013

This stuff is magic for keeping shoes looking like new. The clear polish you can get in most shoe shops does nothing like this colour stuff for shoes. I've bought blue, purple and red so far. You can even use it on handbags. It is well worth the money.

very hardy, good quality polishing cloth. I'd buy loads of them, only they are not cheap.--- --- ---- -- -----
