Mix and Match: Colours (Baby Walker) (Walker Books)

4.0 Stars4.0 Stars4.0 Stars4.0 Stars  by Debra Found

Bright with Great Drawings

The idea of a book for very young children which matches colours is not a new one. There are plenty of similar books on the market, many of which are very good. This is a board backed book designed for very young children probably best suited to 2 and under though the Amazon product page does state 3 and under. The book is split into two parts with a small book like section on the spine with the colours in ...

The Shadow Sister (The Seven Sisters Book 3) (Macmillan)

Struggled to Put it Down

This is the third book in Lucinda Riley's Seven Sister's series. Although this could be read as a stand alone book I think any reader would get far more from the book by reading the first two before this one. The first book is "The Seven Sisters". In this book we follow the third sister, Star. She lives her life in the shadow of the fourth sister, CeCe. CeCe makes the decisions, does the talking and genera ...

The Eyre Affair (Thursday Next) (Hodder Paperbacks)

Totally weird .... but in a good way

Defining this book is beyond me ... enthusing about it is not. What fun ... This book is based on a number of delightful conceits - pretend that the Crimean war is not over, pretend that characters can step out of novels and affect the real world, accept that dodos do not have to be extinct and revel in the fact that we can change the ending of books. Add in some time travel and some truly amazing names and ...

What do the death of Stephens & Mephisto's ex-commanding officer, a hit and run in America and the d ...

Death Notes (A Phineas Fox Mystery) (Severn House Publishers)

4.0 Stars4.0 Stars4.0 Stars4.0 Stars  by Debra Found

Lots of Threads

This is the first in a series of books containing the music researcher and writer, Phineas Fox. Surprisingly he has quite a back seat in this book considering he is the main character who will be recurring in a series of books. We learn very little about Phineas Fox apart from his job, he is single and he lives in a flat which is slightly beyond his means. We do learn a lot about his rugby playing, party gi ...
