YAY, we love Foxy! This is a charming little story that is great for kids that are starting school for the very first time.

I found it nearly impossible to pry this book away from my daughter as she likes to sleep with it safely tucked under her pillow. Anything by Oliver Jeffers my daughter falls in love with, she can even spot the illustrations he does in other books, The Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnaby Brocket for example, which was a little surprising, she is obviously a super fan! The Hueys is another fabulous instalment from Mr Jeffers, who’s unique style always manages to put a smile on our faces. The Hueys are quirky little people that are very funny and quite charming.… Read more >>>

She runs the York Council tracker programme making sure that Otherworlders are all where they should be, keeps the filing in order and drinks far too much coffee. To Jess, vampires are annoying and arrogant and far too sexy for their own good, particularly her ex-colleague Sil, who’s now in charge of Otherworld York. But when a demon turns up and threatens not just Jess but the whole world order, she and Sil are forced to work together, and when Jess turns out to be the key to saving the world it puts a very different slant on their relationship.… Read more >>>
This is the second Nicholas Allan book we have had the pleasure of reading and it’s really clear to see that he has a knack for writing hilariously! We were laughing out loud the whole way through this delightful read. The storyline is fabulous and the whole book rhymes in a sing song way, which makes reading out loud a real barrel of laughs. I adore the illustrations, they are bright, bold, colourful and full of character. A new favourite for us to read again and again, I don’t think it will ever get old.
One day whole sitting on the loo, a giant’s toilet roll just rolled away.… Read more >>>
