A captivating debut from one of Booktrust's Best New Illustrators ... is exceptional for its endearing and expressive characterisation, distinctive stylised figures, and unusual palette of ochre, orange, purple, turquoise and indigo, like 1970s' curtains. It makes you smile. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times * Earnest and witty in equal measure, tots will love the quirky illustrations. * Pregnancy & Parenting *

The bold retro illustrations are akin to the children's programme 'Dipdap' - minimal, simple yet adept at eliciting constant laughter from my three year old...something that I thought such a simple book, with a simple, straight-forward story-line couldn't achieve. Based upon my daughter's response to this book, I can certainly see why it has won so many awards. A highly recommended book for your children's bookshelf!
Also, as a teacher, I think this book could be used with older children who are learning to write character descriptions to learn about the importance of detail to create a correct image in the reader's mind.
