The Lovereading4Kids comment

Stylish imagery in black and white (with a cleverly done tiny hint of colour on each page) introduces some familiar animals in a highly original way. Perfectly placed holes for little fingers will encourage readers to engage closely with each picture as they familiarise themselves with each animal.

My Circus is also available.
