Reviews

Praise for The Cow That Laid an Egg, illustrated by Russell Ayto: 'The Cow That Laid an Egg... had me in stitches. More than just a silly story about a cow who thinks she's laid an egg, there's something deeper here about the idea of family, but it's so integral to the story that you don't feel as thought you've been hit over the head with the sledgehammer of worthiness.

's Choice Junior 'A wonderfully madcap story with wacky illustrations.'

'Children will love the sheer craziness of this story, and Russell Ayto's spectacular illustrations are the perfect accompaniment.'

'The Witch's Children', illustrated by Russell Ayto: 'This book has been wonderfully designed and the text is in perfect harmony with the incredible funny illustrations'
