You will have read our Parragon reviews before and know that they have yet to disappoint.  This month we have been sent ‘Disney The Isle of the Lost’ by Melissa De La Cruz to have a look at. Monkey was a reluctant reader, it wasn’t that he couldn’t read, it was that he didn’t really …

Book Competition – The Wizard of Oz

We really are a book loving family, all four of us love to read for fun. I will admit that I haven’t read as much as I used to recently; I used to be able to read a book in a day, a couple of days at most, but as I got older others things …
