Harper and the Night Forest – review and giveaway.

There’s a book for everyone that they remember from when they start to read, I think. For Smallest it looks like it’s going to be Harper. We’ve had the first Harper book on our shelves for a couple of years, and she’s been completely uninterested, despite the shiny silver cover and the lovely pictures. It […]

Fingerlings – win your own interactive toy monkey.

As far as my kids are concerned, the best bit about me blogging is that every now and then fun stuff arrives in the post. Given that the Fingerling arrived the day after Smallest had to have a tooth extracted (there’s a fab way to feel like a failed parent if ever there was one). […]

Wildflower Bay by Rachael Lucas – review and giveaway

It is no secret to any of my readers here or on social media that I am a huge fan of Rachael’s work. I’ve known her for years – we first ‘met’ online on email lists back when we were very new mothers, and have been bumping into each on and offline ever since. I’ve […]

The Inventory: Iron Fist by Andy Briggs (review with giveaway)

When Big was around 12 or 13 she read pretty much constantly, often books I was interested in – we’d rush to be first at a new YA, and wait impatiently for the other to finish so that we could discuss it. Small is a different kettle of fish. Although he is an extremely competent […]
