"Kim Lewis draws the English countryside and farm animals with delicate and detailed realism." The Sunday Times; "A good book for demonstrating to small explorers the wisdom of staying close by, without being at all frightening." The Bookseller; "A heart-warming story and an ideal stimulus to explore spring. The book is wonderfully accurate both visually and in its observations of animal behaviour." Nursery World
