Caring For Your Books

On Handling Books

Never take a book off a shelf by putting your finger on the top of the spine and pulling the book towards you – this damages the head-cap, which will eventually break off. Try and remove a book by either passing your hand over the top and gently pushing from the fore-edge or by
pushing the flanking books further forward so that you are able to wrap your hand around the spine of the book and firmly grasp each side. Ensure you support heavy books with the other hand underneath.

The Sleeping Beauty Theatre Book

Here's a snippet of my daughter's rendition of Sleeping Beauty. 
I thought this was apt as the news yesterday was dominated by the announcement of 
the Royal engagement. 


The Sleeping Beauty Theatre Book encourages fine motor skills, story telling 
and imagination in young to older children. 
A lovely gift for fans (of all ages), of Sleeping Beauty, and my illustrated story book

German Edition of 'Once Upon A Time; A History of Fairy Tales' by Marina Warner Released


From wicked queens, beautiful princesses, elves, monsters, and goblins to giants, glass slippers, poisoned apples, magic keys, and mirrors, the characters and images of fairy tales have cast a spell over readers and audiences, both adults and children, for centuries. These fantastic stories have travelled across cultural borders, and been passed on from generation to generation, ever-changing, renewed with each re-telling. Few forms of literature have greater power to enchant us and rekindle our imagination than a fairy tale.
