"* "I can't wait for the next Gaskitt story!" Literacy and Learning. [Now you don't have to! The second title, The Woman Who Won Things, also out this month!] * "The first in a series about the Gaskitts, who must surely be destined for greatness." The Sunday Times * "Huge fun and ideal for early readers." The Independent on Sunday * "This book is a joy, made the more so by McEwen's bright, clear, funny and touching pictures, which capture perfectly the Ahlberg humour. Every page is a triumph, text and illustration in partnership drawing the reader on through this romp of a story, which shimmers with life and laughter. Long live the Gaskitts." TES Primary * "A delight from beginning to end. The pictures are outstanding and mark the advent of a really inspired illustrator." The Financial Times
