A story of prejudice and acceptance, funny lists and silly words, this new audiobook has all the hallmarks of David’s previous best sellers. Our hero Ben is bored beyond belief after he is made to stay at his grandma’s house. She’s the boringest grandma ever: all she wants to do is to play Scrabble, and eat cabbage soup. But there are two things Ben doesn’t know about his grandma.

Our 6 & 5 year olds enjoyed it. Probably aimed at children slightly older and think will bear another reading.

How 9/11 has been used to justify everything

Reviewed: 02-09-12

This is a very well researched, structured and written book. Dominic Streatfeild bring clarity to how the world has changed since 9/11, not because cause of the actual attacks but by the way the west responded to them and was prepared to sacrifice previously dearly held values.
This is a great book and it narrated grippingly.
