Item of the day: Five Go Parenting from Waterstones

Have you seen the new series of Enid Blyton spoofs? I’ve gotta read Five Go Parenting – it looks hilarious and perfect for a bookworm raised on Blyton. It’s £5.99 from Waterstones.

In an unprecedented move I’m actually early with this month’s post rather than late. November has not been the greatest.
