Reviews

Through her bold and bright illustratins and the use of flaps and an acetate spread for a snowdrift, Debi Gliori gives bats a makeover in a familiar story embellished with new rituals Guardian There's no-one quite like Debi Gliori for filling each page of a picture book with immediately exciting shapes backed up by a dramatic use of colour -- Nicholas Tucker Carousel Detailed flaps and an intricate flurry of snowflakes add an interactive element to this gentle tale Junior A winter bedtime story, sufficiently long to satisfy most pre-schoolers as one by one various mini-beasts, plus the sun and the Earth are tucked in for the night The Bookseller Debi Gliori's talents as a writer and artist are clear and this book will appeal greatly to a very young audience and their parents. Ideal for sharing, the story lends itself to being read aloud and encourages interaction www.writeaway.org.uk
