Product description

Review

'An unusual and challenging picture book that works on two quite diverse levels. The immediate impression is that of a fun, fast paced read aloud story and for full impact it must be read aloud. This is as it should be when the story is composed by a performance poet with Matt Harvey's skills and sympathy. But then when the racy supermarket shopping story has been enjoyed and, perhaps, read several times the reader will come to look much more closely at Miriam Latimer's complex and exciting illustrations for it is there that the items on Mum's shopping list can be found and ticked off. So, the picture book becomes a puzzle book and a serious search for all the shopping list items can begin in earnest. The observant young reader might also be on the look out for other stories being told in the pictures as the pages turn. Now, what is that ubiquitous mouse up to? There are more puzzles and many more fascinating details to search for in this brilliant book and this reviewer could not possibly reveal them.' --School Library Association

'Devon-based author and poet Harvey (as featured on Radio 4's 'Saturday Live' and the Guardian's Work section) sets his witty rhyming couplets to work in a tale of a little girl who goes on a disastrous but funny trip to the supermarket with her dad. The poetry is top drawer ("... I held on to Dad/Who looked twenty to proud, and a quarter past sad") and the details of parent/child relationships observed through far-from-rose-tinted spectacles ("I said 'I'm very sorry.' I thought this was best/Because I knew that my Dad was getting quite stressed/And he was. He said/'STOP!' He said, 'Give. It. A. Rest.'" Ace pics from UWE grad Latimer.' --Venue
