There once was a young girl called Bridget...

'Stop fidgeting!' is the perennial cry of parents everywhere. Or it used to be.

But fidgeting is fun and fingers are made to fiddle with. So it's little wonder that the toy phenomenon of 2017 taking the world by storm is the fidget spinner.

The fidget toy craze is currently so massive that it’s already destined to go down in history
along with the Rubik’s Cube, Cabbage Patch Dolls and Hula Hoop as one of the most popular
toy fads of all time. However, many of the fidget toy versions now flooding the market are
actually copycat knock-offs, that aren’t a patch on the original.

But that's not all. Because leading international toy and consumer products company ZURU Toys is thrilled to announce an exclusive worldwide deal with Antsy Labs to manufacture and distribute the
original sensation which started it all - the Fidget Cube.

Fidget Cube is available now from all major UK retailers including Tesco, Asda, Argos, Toys R Us etc. selling for £9.99 each. So, forget about fiddling about with paperclips and pens, once you get your hands on these toys you won’t want to fidget with anything else!

All the Good Things

What if you did a very bad thing... but that wasn't the end of the story? That's the intriguing premiss of the new book by Clare Fisher. 

All the Good Things is the story of Beth, twenty-one and in prison having done something so bad she doesn't ever deserve to feel good again.

But her counsellor, Erika, won't give up on her. She asks Beth to make a list of all the good things in her life. So Beth starts to write down her story, from sharing silences with Foster Dad No. 1, to flirting in the Odeon on Orange Wednesdays, to the very first time she sniffed her baby's head.

But at the end of her story, Beth must confront the bad thing.

What is the truth hiding behind her crime? And does anyone - even a 100% bad person - deserve a chance to be good?

You can find out (and enjoy an engrossing tale along the way) by entering this week's Sunday Book Giveaway.  (Just leave a 'pick me' comment below).
