Macavity the Cat is back entertaining children with his naughtiness, 75 years after first being born as a very naughty cat who somehow was never at the scene of his crime, no matter how hard they tried to catch him.

This is a timeless tale of a cat who always seemed to be somewhere else when things seem to go mysteriously missing.

Well, it has finally arrived: the book you give to those who have everything: the book that is so filled with puzzles that in spite of the blurb on the back cover recommending you do one a day for 365 days, you will either do one a day, challenge yourself and do an entire weeks’ worth in one hit or alternatively look at the first one, classed as simple and easy to do and go, great gift for someone else.

Usually when we read a book the story-line, characters and plot are revealed by description, conversations and interaction between various characters.

This story is completely different!  The whole story is told via a complete set of emails from one person.  At first it appeared this may give a very limited view of the story, but as the emails from Jess to Arthur continue, much more information is revealed and alluded to.  Arthur is away researching pine trees in a snowy northern wilderness.

When hard-drinking, hard-living reporter Peter Clancy gets offered a promotion as the Crime reporter for the Truth newspaper he’s not sure if the paper is going broke and this is a joke, or it’s for real! Turns out it’s for real and before he knows it he's heading once again for hated Townsville and the Hilliard trial, both as a witness and surreptitiously as a reporter.

Everyone says that your days at school should be some of the best times ever! This may be true for a few children, but  many children would strongly disagree.

 Nick, Molly and Karl are the members of the “Odd Squad”, three kids who just don't fit in to school life and the school world. One of the reasons for this is ROY!, the “Mutant Troll Bully” who enjoys putting Nick inside  his own locker.   Because Nick is one of the shortest kids in the school, he fits into the locker neatly, although he does suffer from “Zombie Butt” when his rear end becomes numb.

This is a truly unconventional book, in the writing style, the characters and the storyline. Nicholson is a wordsmith of great imagination; it feels like the reader is actually inside his brain, with the flow of words and ideas passing by to their conclusion.

We discover the main character Paul Chowder is a poet who has published an anthology of poems. He is just celebrating his fifty fifth birthday and seems very uncertain about his future, and the direction in which he is moving. Rather like the Travelling Sprinkler, he appears to be moving aimlessly along a twisted hose.

This book was a cracker of a read! It has been very well crafted with characters rounded and familiar to the reader. The settings were wonderfully highlighted and varied (from N.Y.'s most exclusive homes, to a cold log cabin) and the plot has many unexpected progressions.

Stella so often said to herself  ""It will get better, it's just a season" The pain and despair that Stella faced so often in her life would have totally overwhelmed most other people, but she has survived and grown despite this. Stella Gibney's story is a thought provoking, emotional and empowering story of facing the worst life can sometimes deliver and surving, older, stronger and wiser.

Flight MH370 is proving to be one of the most intriguing airline disasters of recent time; A plane setting off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on a routine flight to Beijing vanishes somewhere, or so it would seem at the time, over the South China Sea on March 8, 2014.

The 12 crew along with the 227 passengers simply disappeared and none of the flight control centres could verify when the plane was last seen, or in contact with the ground.

Sue Halpern and her dog Pransky found themselves at one of those points in life where some serious life reassessment was required.

Sue was facing the ‘empty nest’ syndrome; this coupled with her husband traveling overseas more often in his work. Pransky was just plain bored and looking for ways to get into trouble. After all he is a very intelligent labradoddle, a bread noted for intelligent and activity.
