I was amazed at the quality of the books my local library regularly disposes of. This happens according to a librarian, because, children are not reading as much as they used to and the library wants to use the shelf space for other things. I was greatly saddened to hear this but it has offered me the opportunity to read an even wider range of children’s books as well as adult books.

This has meant that my pile of books grows at an alarming rate which I am having to work hard to keep on top of. But, as hard as I try the pile keeps getting larger.

We honestly can look after your dog by Lauren Child

We honestly can look after your dogI choose to buy this book to see if what  my daughter had told me about the Charlie and Lola series was true. My daughter told me that the brother and sister duo Charlie and Lola books were good and I have to admit I wasn’t very interested but this book has made me look at them.

Lola would really like to have a dog but the size of their flat means that this is not possible. One day she gets to pretend that she owns a dog when one of Charlie’s friends trusts her and her friend with his dog. The only thing he insists on is that they do not let him off the lead. This Lola promises, but, you’ve guessed it the dog goes missing. After much searching he is found and found again, in fact there are two dogs who look the same.

Charlie’s friend comes to the rescue and identifies his dog.

Another aspect of my work is to present nationally developed work for the National Strategies. With economic cuts my job will terminate in Spring next year and I may be carrying out independent work based around high quality picture books. My other interest include my allotment, knitting and last but not least my family. My Twitter name is Orlama.
