A fascinating insight into the lives of these unique creatures. Ibby Link

The drawing is full of character and cleverly integrated with jaunty rhyming text and fact panels. Packs an emotional punch as effective as fiction. Lovely use of colour - The Herald

The sheer variety of ways of communicating all manner of interesting
information is a strong feature of this book - Books for Keeps
