The Lovereading4Kids comment

There are jokes galore in Elys Dolan’s brilliant new picture book and they’ll make readers of all ages crack up! Mr Bunny is a tough boss: while he’s in his office keeping a close eye on the profits, his chicken employees are hard at work making chocolate, then eating it and laying chocolate eggs! When he insists on upping production even further, the chickens decide un oeuf is un oeuf, lay down their tools and come out on strike, proclaiming power to the poultry, and demanding better working conditions. Fortunately Mr Bunny realises he needs the workers on his side, and industrial relations are rapidly restored. Bursting with verbal and visual gags, this is a wildly original and rewarding picture book; in fact I’d go so far as to say it is egg-cellent. ~ Andrea Reece

Reviews

Praise for Nuts in Space:

Dolan's illustrations are a dippy delight and the jokes in the many speech bubbles funny enough to stand the test of many readings. A classic in the cracking. Children's Book of the Week - The Times

Praise for Weasels:

Dolan's hysterical picture book follows the weasels at work on the day they plan to seize global power but unexpected obstacles keep thwarting their efforts, from faulty machinery to over-zealous health and safety inspectors [] Every page is a treasure trove of hilarity and it will take several reads to pick up on all the clever little details which Dolan has scattered about the place. Its also fun to follow the progress of individual weasels as the story unfolds keep an eye out for the one with the huge drill, who happens to be my personal favourite. Picture Book of the Month - The Independent

Praise for The Clockwork Dragon:

Illustrator Elys Dolan brings Emmetts imaginative, exciting and funny story to life with colourful, appealing artwork... Lancashire Evening Post
