Charming and clever with beautifully crafted simple prose
on 1 February 1999
On-line buyers, you have a handicap with this book - you cannot see inside the pages. If you could, you would definitely buy it. The story is charming the pictures fascinating, and the prose is probably the best I have seen in a book aimed at 3-6 year olds. Every word is perfectly chosen so that each sentence leads neatly into the next. I have read it aloud to my children probably a hundred times and still enjoy it.
