My (now adult) kids loved the Raymond Briggs stories and I bought this one for my nephew who is 5. He even takes it to bed and school with him! One delighted little boy - the added excitement for him was a parcel addressed to him, delivered by the postman. Thanks Amazon - more orders on their way.

Funny, sweet and magical. A wonderful tale by a master storyteller.

This is less of a graphic novel and more of an illustrated children’s story. In the familiar oversized format this has a low page count, chunky panels and sparing dialogue. It has the wonderful pencils, bright colours and ever present green of the Briggs style.
This is definitely one to delight the younger reader whatever their age. You can tell Briggs is using his own experience with children, and not just from the credits at the back. His observation and understanding of a child’s speech and logic is evident throughout this charming tale.
A brief encounter but one that can’t fail to make you smile.
Thumbs Up.

A lovely, subtle and funny story - works on different levels to delight both kids and parents. Beautiful illustrations too, of course.

Raymond Briggs' books are always special and this one is no exception. The grandchildren enjoyed the story and the illustrations are really lifelike.
Good service as usual and packaged well.
Thankyou

This book is delightful. I warmly recommend it for grandparents, grandchildren, peddle enthusiasts and the public at large. A wonderful book to share.
