Win a Copy of The Grumpface

The Grumpface By BCR Fegan

A modern day fairytale by Australian author BCR Fegan lands in the UK to amuse children and parents alike.

The Grumpface is a modern-day fairytale in the spirit of any grand adventure, taking your children on a journey to a land far away, a long time ago, to the village of Hay, near the Forest of Ho. The protagonist is a clumsy young inventor on a quest for true love, and the challenges he must face to find it. But it is also a tale of bravery, absurdity and happiness, and the power of these qualities over negativity and sheer grumpiness. Continue reading Win a Copy of The Grumpface

This Plus That Equals…. Authors I Love

This plus that equals…. authors I love

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about reading. Something that I have always loved and couldn’t live without, so I thought I would share some of authors I love with you.

I’m a complete murder mystery addict, as you’ll soon be able to tell. But just in case anyone wants to know what my favourite ever book is, you’ll be surprised to hear it is A Bear Called Paddington – Michael Bond. To this day it is my go to book when I’m ill and it still makes me laugh.

Reading with JCB Kids

A couple of weeks ago we had another fun delivery from JCB Kids. As always L was very excited and absolutely delighted with his new goodies.

He got some fabulous pajamas from the range available at George, great digger printed bottoms with a fun Joey top which quite frankly he could wear as a T-Shirt, there is a chance that he maybe has! At only £9.00 for the set I think this is really good value, everything washes up well and has been tumble dried several times.  Continue reading Reading with JCB Kids

Fearne Fairy and the Landing Lesson – Book Review

L and I love the Whimsy Wood books by Sarah Hill. Simple stories about Pixies and Fairies and most of all nature.

Fearne Fairy and the Chocolate Caterpillar is no exception. It is brilliant. The perfect length bedtime book. Lots of amazing illustrations.

The Whimsy Wood Series

We love reading to L, it’s part of our bedtime routine. I regularly ignore age ranges on books too, and I’m so glad I did as otherwise I would have never discovered the wonderful Whimsy Wood series by Sarah Hill. I couldn’t be more excited to get to read book 9 Fearne Fairy and the Chocolate Caterpillar.

I’ll quickly explain why I love the Whimsy Wood books so much. Based in a lovely magical, woodland. They are soft and warm and filled with great fun and a strong sense of the natural world. They are the book form of that idyllic childhood feeling we all want our kids to have. You can read my previous reviews here and here. Continue reading The Whimsy Wood Series
