Reviews

Child's comedy romp confounds the expectations of young readers to hilarious effect. Time Out Child's book is so unusual, it's impossible not to get drawn into it ... as with all Child's books, her wonderfully quirky illustrations bring the story to life The List Lauren Child pushes the boundaries of design in a book crammed with a wealth of comic detail Child Education Each page is still a surprise and a delight Books For Keeps A book children will come to again and again School Librarian Lauren Child's individual style is shown to perfection in this funny, subversive story Bookwise Brilliantly observed with heaps of irreverent (but good natured) humour) Junior
