By | Children's Literature, Inspired by Literature, News | No Comments
British budget department store Primark is about to make all your dreams come true with a range of Harry Potter Christmas baubles and decorations.

Book Themed Burgers on Bob’s Burgers Season 1 – 5.

By | Inspired by Literature, Television | No Comments
Bob’s Burgers is an animated sitcom set in a fictional seaside community and surrounds the Belcher family who run the local burger restaurant. The Belchers are Bob and Linda- the parents- and their children Tina (obsessed with butts and ponies), Gene (the goofball and musical fart machine), and Louise (possibly a psychotic evil genius).
