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.'

'Ungerer manages to get the message of sharing across in this beautiful Christmas story'

'demonstrates the charm of simplicity. ... a quirky story of the spirit of Christmas'

'provides sentiment with a gently sardonic edge .. Ungerer's eye for detail and gentle wit is as fresh as it was 50 years ago.'

'so strong and graphically interesting ... It's art - illustration at the highest level.'

'delightful and artistically nourishing'
