Reviews

Charming... Printed on thick mat paper, with a two-colour palette true to the author and artist Tomi Ungerer's original artwork, the books make delightful bedtime reading for the under-sevens. -Daily Telegraph Ungerer manages to get the message of sharing across in this beautiful Christmas story. -Outside In Demonstrates the charm of simplicity... A quirky story of the spirit of Christmas. -The Sunday Times Provides sentiment with a gently sardonic edge... Ungerer's eye for detail and gentle wit is as fresh as it was 50 years ago. -Sunday Telegraph So strong and graphically interesting... It's art - illustration at the highest level. -The Times Delightful and artistically nourishing. -New York Times
