Reviews

This is a charming story, beautifully illustrated story about the ups and downs of friendship between a zebra, a bird and an elephant, from the exciting and award-winning new talent * Lovereading4kids * One to entertain toddlers while offering a gentle early life lesson * Time Out * What I really love about this book are the illustrations, in particular the barren landscapes of the African plains. The colours of the landscapes are muted, pale and naturalistic; juxtaposed with storm-filled skies that create a striking contrast full of atmosphere * Magpie That * This beautifully portrayed story about the real meaning of friendship set in the African savannahs is a visual delight, particularly the range of expressions on the animals

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
