Hi everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve written anything much here and I have no excuses other than laziness and a loss of creative mojo.

This picture is mostly unrelated to the contents of this post, but I can’t be bothered drawing up a different thumbnail. Also, this’ll have the women-of-a-certain-age clicking to see if I’m really wearing a tutu.

Another day, another book review from Meg. This is Tiger Days and the Secret Cat by Sarah Lean. A story about a young girl called Tiger Days and a cat that is secret…. So, yeah, Meg read it, not me. I thought it’d be a book about a tiger.

Jess is helping me to review Jacqueline Wilson’s Rent A Bridesmaid, which is quite possibly the pinkest book I’ve ever looked at.

Everyone loves a superhero team up, but what happens when your favourite superhero is a potato, facing an army of evil defrosted peas? Who will step out of the vegetable rack to save him?

Well, there’s a paragraph I’ve never typed before. Hello, welcome to my review of SUPERTATO – VEGGIES ASSEMBLE, the new book by Sue Hendra & Paul Linnet.

Naturally, I got the kids in to help with the review, because they had an hour off working down t’pit and they were complaining about being bored.
