Reviews

Pumpkin Soup, with its rhythmic text, syncopated layout, and rich and hot colour harmonies, is both a musical comedy and a visual feast. The trio are outrageously attractive characters and such is copers command of technical effects, you can almost taste the colours, touch the textures and lose yourself in the autumnal landscape -- Jan Doonan TES Exciting Sunday Telegraph A portable work of art, glowing the rich colours of autumn ... A highly inventive, witty slant on a familiar theme of friendship and sharing which children of ages three and up will adore The Bookseller Here is a story of friendship lost and regained, told with insight and understanding, not only as far as the characters are concerned, but as to how a picture book works ... The book is briliantly constructed Child Education The stunning lustrous illustrations which accompany this story reflect its warmth, vivacity and humour Books Etc.
