Reviews

Fun, distinctly unpreachy, but with a clear message too. Great for the early years library, as I imagine many children will relate! * School Librarian * Many children will identify with this sibling rivalry theme, relayed with wit and warmth, and illustrated with energy and bright, primary colours. * Irish Daily Mail * This wonderfully illustrated picture book by the superbly talented Matt Robertson addresses the issue of sibling rivalry in a really heartwarming and fun way * Title Sussex * In this sweet, funny and above all, reassuring story, Matt Robertson captures the perspective of a crestfallen big brother, struggling to find his place within an altered family dynamic, with a marvellously astute and empathetic touch * Teach Early Years * Many children will identify with this sibling rivalry theme, relayed with wit and warmth and illustrated with energy and bright, primary colours. * Daily Mail * This is a fun story, with a lovely, warm ending. Great for smoothing a rough ride amongst siblings, or just for a great bedtime story. * The Bookbag * [A] super debut picture book * Red Reading Hub * A delightful story about sibling rivalry and sibling love. * Parents In Touch *

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
