A very enjoyable picture book with a loveable main character who will I am sure appeal to children and adults of all ages. Every page is a delight and it's the sort of book our child will want you to read again and again. (www.thebookbag.co.uk)
Marvin is a meerkat, though it has to be said that the cover illustration is different from the usual 'aah - sweet' look given these creatures. The habitual communal activities of his group include taking morning exercise, but Marv's individual quirks mean that he doesn't take things seriously and causes some disruption too. However it is Marv who has a plan beyond general panicking to discourage the bullying buzzard. When a diversion is needed what better than Marv's dance, an astonishing, attention-grabbing solo in the manner of that hilarious dance in The Office. A funny, exuberant book full of lively pictures with movement and activity and the plan of a nice underground burrow to explore. (boysintobooks.co.uk)
Marvin is meerkat who is really rather fabulous... A lovely story about putting one's unique strengths to good use - however irritating they may seem to others. (Junior)
This is a funny exuberant book with lively pictures filled with movement and activity. ... It's a good picture book to read aloud and good for individual, or shared, exploration too. (School Librarian)
