Review

A terrific book for young children, using superb illustrations and a range of vocabulary that is imaginative and fun (Nursery World)

A genuinely charming bath time fantasy...executed with freshness and vigour (Books For Keeps)

A wonderfully rhythmic read about overcoming your fears, this is an exceptionally strong picture book with superb illustrations (SW)

Terrific rhyming text and bold illustrations...[a] glorious, rollicking work of imagination (The Guardian)

Deliciously funny (The Times)

Through the terrific rhyming text and bold illustrations Oliver discovers that, though small, he is indeed mighty as he lives through his fears in this glorious, rollicking work of imagination. (Julia Eccleshare, Guardian)

A story with wonderfuflly rhythmic text, lively illustrations and great empathy for young children's fears. (Nursery World)

A deliciously funny portrayal of the way that a small child transforms a bath into an epic, it will remind you why keeping at least one pirate boat and a few plastic sharks and dolphins are essential. (Amanda Craig, Times)

An incredibly imaginative and creative tale of Oliver's bathtime adventure with superb lyrical text. This will appeal to all childre with bright lively minds. (Family Interest Magazine)

With the wind howling outside the bathroom window, Oliver is feelng mighty small against the elements. How he wishes he was tall and mighty. With that our diminutive hero takes a deep breath and dives into his bath and sets off on a watery adventure, where he sails among mermaids, whales and dolphins, pirates and sea monsters, courtesy of his vivid imagination. (JUNIOR)

Lively illustrations,... The influence of Maurice Sendak can be sensed. (School Librarian)

A wonderfully rhythmic read about overcoming your fears, this is an exceptionally strong picture book with superb illustrations. (SW)

What a brilliant book. Positive messaging, you can be small and yet mightyI My 3 year old son loves this book. He has been born with a restricted growth condition and realises he is smaller than his peers. However even though Oliver is small he can fight the pirates away. A great boost of self-esteem for my son when we can agree that although he maybe small he is still mighty. The prose is great too. Lovely big illustrations to engage a young mind. Thank you!!!

Nice book, obviously purchased because of the name, arrived quickly, paid a fiver for it, probably a bit expensive for what you get but would buy more if the price was right.

I quite like all the Oliver books, they are interesting and have nice illustrations. My kids love them too (3 and 5), so I'm sold.
