Rufus in Rabitannia by Suzanna Welby
Exquisite, old-fashioned children’s book. Hardback, lavishly illustrated by English artist JKS . Set in mid-century England, recently uncovered from its hiding place of 45 years, it will charm both adults and children alike. Signed and dedicated on request.
Rufus Wesley is a rude and spoilt little boy. Powers beyond his control have decided he needs to be taught a lesson so that he might become an acceptable member of the human race.
Magically he is whisked into the extraordinary world of Rabitannia where, to his great distress, he is turned into a rabbit. He is tasked by no lesser entity than the King of Rabitannia himself with finding and returning the long-lost Crown Princes, sole heirs to the Rabitannian throne. Assisted by the brave and heroic warrior rabbit Capuchin, Rufus finds himself catapulted into a dangerous and mysterious world of enchantment, wizards, worgs, weasels – and treachery and loyalty beyond imagining.

Pasqua Winery – Mai dire Mai / ABV: 15%
Wondering what to drink with Christmas dinner? Mai dire Mai has you covered.
This is a wine to be discovered and that reveals itself gradually; austere on the first sip but then all its power and personality comes to the fore. Intense and complex, elegant and ethereal.
On the nose, it offers overtones of tobacco, cedar wood, autumn leaves and balsamic notes on the palate, it is warm and intense with morello cherry, clove and coffee aromas, very fine and rounded tannins. Decisive, with high acidity and a long, enduring finish with spicy notes.
Mai dire Mai is priced at £42 and available here
Smile Makers welcomes The Neighbor
Smile Makers, the leading, global sexual wellness and intimacy brand in mainstream retail, welcomes its first anal stimulator, The Neighbor.
As society becomes more sex positive, so does the curiosity for anal play. With a third of vulva owners engaging in anal sex, and half of Smile Makers’ community enjoying anal stimulation1, the introduction of The Neighbor will help users explore anal sex safely, pleasurably and on their own terms.
For many, the first experience of anal stimulation may be negative due to bad technique, a lack of sex education, discomfort and an unfavorable, lasting impression. Smile Makers’ new addition will therefore help encourage a more positive experience, having combined extensive research within the market, consumer perceptions, and anatomical data to create a considered product that’s approachable, playful and enticing for beginners.
