I've now given this to four children in my life - aged between 2 and half and five and half. All of them love it - love the pace and rhythm of the story, find it very funny (the two and half year old has spent all day giggly AACHOO, the 5 year old guffawed at all the mishaps). Their parents say they have enjoyed having to read it - and have had to over and over again. I just love the message behind it - that accidents happen and don't have to be anybody's fault and that things get better quicker if everyone mucks in and helps.... The illustrations are superb too - engaging and funny in themselves

I've loved this book since my first daughter brought it home from the local library one day. We've taken it out quite a few times, and now I am delighted to have found it, and bought it.
I would go as far as to say it's been my favourite children's book to read to my two girls in the last nearly seven years.
It is amusing, touching and strikes a real chord with me as a dad with daughters. Well done Matt Harvey, great job.
