Just started reading this series of books to my 6 year old daughter and she loves them!
Glitterwings Academy: Flying High if the first in a series of books by Titania Woods the pen name Lee Weatherly a respected author of teen fiction.
The book is set around the Glitterwings Academy which is the fairy school to go to. And Twink, the main character, is so excited to be starting her first term. But she is also a little nervous. Will she make friends? And will she be able to pass the all-important test for new students – that of learning to fly?
This book is really well written has been thoroughly enjoyed by myself and my 6 year old daughter – “It’s great!” she said. We can’t wait to start the next book, it’s a must for any little girls.

If you have nothing to do this weekend then I would highly recommend the musical that is on at the Dolman Theatre this week.
Return to the Forbidden Planet is a production that is loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest with elements of 50’s B-movies and is full of the best rock ‘n’ roll music. The show is set on a spaceship that has been diverted from its usual service job to land on a planet where mad scientist Doctor Prospero and his lovely daughter Miranda are marooned.
The whole production is outstanding; from the sets to the costumes everyone looks the part and fit well into the show’s direction. Excellent performances are given by the whole cast especially David Constant as Dr. Prospero and Georgia Tasker-Davies as the Science Officer.
The director, Gordon Collins, showed his versatility by taking on the role of a newscaster and Paul Chard (Captain Tempest) and Sabrina Sydney (Miranda) performed their roles marvellously. A special mention must go to Joseph Tulloch who played Cookie very well, stealing the hearts of many a lady in the audience.
This feel-good show quickly captured my attention with the inclusion of many classic songs so that I found myself singing and clapping along very quickly. Between the music, humour and brilliant performances this show will keep you laughing and dancing all night.
