Daddy Long Legs (Book Review)

Geplaatst op 24 maart, 2019 om 10:15 Comments reacties (1)

There are not many bookstores in the Algarve and those that exist have a limited English section. So I tend to read children’s picture books in Portuguese. While shopping this morning a bright yellow cover grabbed my attention. Papa das pernas longas ( Daddy Long Legs). Yellow always works well. Here is my review in English.


When Matthew’s father’s car has trouble starting, Matthew thinks they may never get to kindergarten. Worse still, what if they get there but the car won’t work in the afternoon? How will his father pick him up? Matthew is so worried that his father won’t be able to fetch him that he keeps asking him questions to reassure himself. The patient father’s answers get more and more imaginative until Matthew is satisfied. One thing is clear, nothing will stop Matthew’s father from fetching his son. The quaint illustrations depict the father’s rich imagination and the fresh colour palette enhances the positive mood of the story. A comforting father and son story suitable for any young child with separation anxiety.

Naviar Records Haiku Music Challenge

Geplaatst op 27 januari, 2019 om 7:45 Comments reacties (0)


When I read the Haiku Foundation’s post about The Haiku Music Challenge, I was intrigued. As a result of my curiosity I decided to give it a go myself. The GarageBand app on my computer had been idle for some years. Last week I composed my first creation. This is my second one. There’s much to learn, but it’s SUCH FUN. Madhuri Pillai’s haiku inspired me to participate again in the Naviar Records Haiku Music Challenge. Here is her wonderful haiku:


night wind

the bush comes alive

with dreamtime stories


Here is my music:
