Reviews

A spectacular sequel to Pumpkin Soup ... Share Cooper's recipe for success, close the covers and then hear the cries for more TES Fraught territory, beautifully controlled Guardian As well as being beautifully illustrated and full of the same spiky humour as Cooper's best-selling Pumpkin Soup, it conveys how scary being lost can be - for children and parents Daily Telegraph Well designed and beautifully produced, it positively glows with mellow autumn warmth and fruitfulness Books for Keeps The rich, glowing colours give a New York-like city an oriental, almost psychedelic look ... The book has an adorable quality. One of my favourites The Children's Bookseller
