Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children Book 1)
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children Book 1)
Price: £5.98

4.0 out of 5 stars Different and imaginative, 5 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this book a lot. It's a very original idea, or at least its like nothing I've come across before. The story kept me interested and the element of the supernatural and strange was a great addition however I like that sort of thing

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun read for brides to be, 5 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book for myself before my wedding and it's an easy read that I could relate to and have a giggle about all the stresses associated with planning a wedding. I have since bought a copy for my friend who is getting married in the spring. Its a lovely little pressie for engagement, birthday or even a hen party gift!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide for non ecologists!, 5 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My husband is an ecologist and as an animal scientist myself I often accompany him on trips to Africa. I must admit that birds are not my strong point (understatement of the year) however over the last five years I've slowly started to pick up the skills required using his traditional bird books that have drawings rather than images. This brings me to what I feel is the main advantage of this book. The photographs! As a total amateur birder I find it much easier to ID birds from photos. I know twitchers everywhere will be screaming at the screen about detail etc etc however seeing the actual bird in an image has been far more useful to me in six months than similar books with drawings. The book is easy to use and small which is handy on field trips. I would recommend for anyone just starting out with their birding or anyone that prefers clear glossy photographs

3.0 out of 5 stars Slowly improves, 5 Mar. 2014

This review is from: The Night Rainbow (Kindle Edition)
I bought this book as Amazon suggested it based on my purchase of the night circus (which was amazing). Despite the synopsis drawing me in I didn't really get into this book until towards the end when the pace picked up. The first two thirds are largely uneventful and whilst it is beautifully written (perhaps why it was recommended based on previous purchase) it didn't make me want to rush back to see what happens next. It did keep me mildly interested until the end though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality poor fit, 20 Jun. 2013

Very difficult to get our sons foot inside. Even without the inner sock it's a struggle, narrow fitting, perhaps order next size up? Good quality through and very cute!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not an angled valve, 20 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered angled valve, this is a straight valve which we can't pump up when it's in the quinny. Useless unless you remove tyre. Not what we ordered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Will be buying more, 14 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These lights are fantastic. I received them at 3pm on a reasonably bright day. I put them straight into the garden and at dusk (around 7.30pm they came on. They were very bright and were still bright at bedtime. I'm very happy and will be buying some more for the front garden. they look very pretty and enhance the look of our garden.

3.0 out of 5 stars A useful book to refer to but not the answer to everything, 14 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has some good common sense ideas. I used the EASY method sucessfully however my little boy didn't always want to nap for the suggested amount of time. I feel all babies are different and therefore this book sometimes makes you doubt whether you're doing the right thing if your baby doesn't conform to the guidelines stated! On the other hand if I hadn't read this book I wouldn't have learned about the importance of self settling and I would still be rocking my baby to sleep every two hours through the night so that aspect was a godsend. I have a contented baby that can put himself back to sleep and who doesn't associate his bottle with going to sleep which has resulted in him sleeping through 7pm until 7.30am with a dream feed from 10 weeks. The only real problem I had was I sometimes felt patronised by the author, especially by being called ducky every few paragraphs! A good book to dip into and refer to but maybe not for everyone?
