"An incredibly powerful book about a boy coming to terms with his parents' divorce: a difficult subject treated with a wonderfully light touch. I'm a huge Lee Wildish fan and think he's definitely a name to watch for the future. I defy you to read this without a lump in your throat."
(Kate Skipper, Waterstones Buyer 20090301)
Lee Wildish's illustrations are lovely. The characters have a rough charm that really draws you in - there are hints of Quentin Blake's ink drawings, but Wildish's style is very much of its own. (Bookbag 20091111)
An excellent book aimed squarely at young children.
(Nursery World 20100114)
A touching tale that resonates with empathy and poignancy.
A touching, tender book.
(Angels & Urchins 20101101)
While the text carries the message, the pictures contribute significantly to this excellent story.
