You Say Which Way - New generation storytelling

‘You Say Which Way’ books for readers 8 – 12 are an exciting new way to get children involved in reading. Your child can go on an adventure to find pirate treasure, go on safari, visit the Magician’s house, or have adventures in the South Pacific (but watch out for the giant squid). 61 more words

Rude Monsters, Hungry Cakes and Dinosaur Scientists

Some of my favourite books are full of adventure but also make me laugh. They can take you to space, the high seas or travel back in time, but they also feature silly monsters, hungry cakes and dinosaur scientists. 408 more words

After reading #55 I wanted to read an earlier Nancy Drew, so I chose #11. I think I have read all these Nancy Drew mysteries, most when I was a child and many again as an adult, some more than once as an adult. 21 more words

My Review of Jennings Goes To School

I never got to read any Jennings books when I was younger, so when someone lent this to me I couldn’t resist. Set in an English boys’ prepatory boarding school and written in the 1950s, the language and culture of the characters is clearly dated, but on reading Jennings’ letter home to his parents in chapter one I sobbed with laughter; it was the funniest thing I’d ever read, and I was hooked! 91 more words
