Children's Book of the Month -

Completely Cassidy

With my embarrassing Dad, pregnant Mum, loser brother and knicker-chewing dog, I'm practically invisible in my family.

So even though starting Year Seven is totally nail-biting, I'm *hoping* this is my time to shine. Because guess what...?

We had to take this test at school, and I am officially Gifted and Talented. It's a bit weird as I picked my answers at random, but the school wouldn't make a mistake about my genius... would they?

Meet the Author - Tamsyn Murray

Tamsyn Murray is a published author of the Stunt Bunny series and YA supernatural romance series, My So-called Afterlife.

Completely Cassidy is her first series for pre-teens and will have you giggling until you (quite possibly) burst.

When she isn’t at work or writing, Tamsyn messes about on stage. She is at her happiest when wearing a princess dress pretending to be someone else, and shows she has starred in include Hello Dolly!, Kiss Me Kate and Anything Goes! She sings a lot and not only in the shower 


Book of the Month:

The WI Cookbook

As the Women's Institute (WI) turns 100, this beautifully packaged book, curated by food journalist Mary Gwynn, brings together the 100 best loved members' recipes nationwide.

Organized decade by decade, and setting each recipe in its historical and social context, it spans everything from jams and preserves to main courses, puddings and bakes. Nostalgic favourites like Toad in the Hole and Kedgeree feature alongside contemporary hits such as Lamb Pot Roast with Nettle Champ and Italian Lamb with Roasted Sweet Peppers.

Here are recipes created during the war to make the most of limited supplies, and ideas to overcome the challenges of food rationing, to current day recipes.

About Mary Gwynn and the Women's Institute

The Womens Institue was formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communites and encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War. Since then the organisations aims have been broadened and the WI is now the largest voluntary women's organisation in the UK. The WI celebrates in centenary in 2015 and current has over 200,000 members.
