Reviews

This is a darkly funny book which teaches us not to take everything at face value * Carousel * Satisfyingly scary for the young reader...The text is a joy to read aloud, the illustrations and page layout imaginative, and just scary enough to engage but not overwhelm the young reader. A picture book for many young readers to treasure * The School Librarian * Neatly told with lots of brilliant read-aloud bits. * Read it Daddy * For every kid who loves a bit of a thrill laced with humour, this is perfect. * Books for Keeps * Takes a well worn premise and reinvigorates it, executing it with imagination and flair. A real delight. * Peters Gazette *
