"Even very young children see the joke." T.E.S. "Shows David McKee's droll, deadpan humour at its very best." Books for Keeps "I adore this book, it's one of my favourite picture books, now out in mini version... With one sentence per page this hilarious book with wonderfully expressive illustrations is great for beginner readers, but I would recommend it to all ages and abilities. I've lost count the number of times I have read it, but it still makes me laugh out loud. The last but one picture in particular is a classic!" -- Debbie Williams Primary Times "A brilliant image of parent-child relationships ... that brings matching ear-to-ear grins to every grown-up and child-in-the-lap'" Books for Keeps "A brilliant fable" -- Tony Bradman The Ultimate First Book Guide
