Reviews

It's a cute but not overly girly (there's a scary cave!) tale of friendship, and Moriuchi's child-like illustrations are as dazzling as the story itself. My three year old oohed and added all the way through. -- Bournemouth Daily Echo 20071102 A story about the power of friendship...told using language that is dreamy and poetic. The sparkly cover will entice children. A gentle happy story for under fives. -- School Librarian 20071201 The lyrical language and affinity between the two main characters is beautifully matched with colourful, stylised artwork. -- Books For Keeps 20080601 An uplifting and touching bedtime story about friendship and the rewards to be found by helping others. With heartwarming pictures and a delightfully flittering cover, it's a story that will ensure sweat dreams. -- Junior 20080605

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk
