Wicked The Musical - A truly magical experience!


Wicked is entering its 12th years at London's West End.  This means for 12 years, as I've gone to London and come out at Victoria Station and seen that green face glaring back at me I have been wondering - "What is that all about!  Is it just a take on the wicked witch's version of events from the wizard of Oz?"

My Summer 2018 Must Watch list


I think I'm finally coming to terms with Avengers - Infinity Wars now!  We watched this movie the only way that this one could be watched for us - at the iMax in 3D.  MASSIVE screen, 3D and sounds to make you feel like Iron Man is whispering in your ear!   Only to have your heart ripped out at the end... *should that be a spoiler alert?*

Who was Belva Lockwood and why is she relevant to a children's book review?
