'The wonderful storyteller Liz Weir creates a lovely little collection of stories and rhymes in Boom Chicka Boom which makes a most welcome reappearance.'

'The format of this book makes it an ideal reader for 5-8 year olds although it would be useful on the pre-school book shelf to read at story-time.'

'Nine magical stories told with gusto ... Adults will rediscover the pleasurable terror and word play of childhood and be just as enthralled as younger readers'
