Larry's a bit of a dark horse as stick insects go! He's 12 years old and happily living halfway up a tree with the other families of bugs and insects. He likes his school, but he needs to win the day over a big bully called Marv and win the attention of pretty Miranda.

Loved Larry the Stick Insect! A great story for children and adults alike. Story of triumph over a bully via a dance off is great fun and there are laugh out loud moments. The narration was brilliant as all the characters had their own voice which matched their description. Would highly recommend.

This book brings together two collections of poems. Part one of the book is a collection of pieces that I composed between February 2004 and December 2005. In February 2004 I learned that, due to an eye condition, I would eventually lose my sight, and these pieces reflect both my frustrations and sadness as I learned more about the condition and why it was happening.

Not normally a poetry reader but found this collection very moving, especially the first part. Really enjoyed the different themes of the poems and they were all very well written. And the narration really brought the poems to life. Would highly recommend.
