Reviews

Praise for Melanie's previous books: ...eye-catchingly quirky and superbly original. The Observer ...dynamic illustrations, with their strong, textured colours and comic caricatures. The Sunday Times ...depicted dynamically in strong colours, bold lines and lots of humour. Carousel ...a fresh and engaging style that draws you in. The writing is bubbly and enticing... The Bookbag Williamson's artwork matches her text in its madcap exuberance. Irish Times A lively, funny picture book. Books for Keeps This will be a popular book. School Librarian Preschoolers will love the action in the bright, uncluttered digital art, as well as the story, filled with wordplay, of an outsider saving the day. Booklist

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 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.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

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