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
