Features a very strong jacket illustration that showcases the immediacy and wit of Waldron's work. -- Lindsey Stainer * The Bookseller * A perfect book for reading again and again. * The Bookseller * A very strong illustration, capturing the wit and personality of this book for a younger children. * The Bookseller * The clever rhyming couplets are a pleasure to say aloud. The bright, bold textured illustrations capture the elephant's creased skin, the muddiness of the hippo, the brightness of the tiger and the naughtiness of the fly in the gorgeous double page spreads, climaxing in a hilarious picture of catastrophe. * The Times * A glittering gem. Rosen's characteristic rhyme and playful humour is perfectly accompanied by Kevin Waldron's vivid imagery. -- Inbali Iserles * The Independent on Sunday * An elephant, a tiger, a hippopotamus and a little fly. Their relationships, in word and picture, constitute a stunning picture book. * The Irish Times * A stunning, bold and funny picture book for the very young. * Woman's Way * Rosen's lively text, a joy to read out loud, is perfectly matched by Waldron's bold artwork, which brings the wild beasts to vivid life. * The Irish Times *

Lovely big book with a pull out middle section and great repetitive and cute theme for young children. Big animals and a teeny fly.
The book is beautifully illustrated but that's not of great importance to me for the reason I wanted this book. The verses had rhythm but were a "bit off". Maybe I'm being overly critical but it just didn't quite do it for me. "My oh, my, tiny little fly. Tiny little fly went flying by..." Cute but not much sustenance, a bit disappointing.
