Reviews

Geraldine McCaughrean knocks the socks off every other children's writer today. Anne Fine McCaughrean is a magical writer - she delights in rhythm and rhyme and creates delightful tales for even the youngest of children. Manchester Evening News Evoking a Maurice Sendak-like dreamscape this night-time rhyme is packed with clever language and definitely deserves to be read aloud... lovely and magical. Books for Keeps Highly recommended for Geraldine McCaughrean's lilting prose and Maria Nilsson's dreamy pictures. The Times Beautiful Bookbag Cleverly worded by Geraldine McCaughrean and cleverly illustrated in line, shapes and colour by Maria Nilsson. School Librarian Attractive, swirling lines and delicious gold and blue-green colours add to the pleasure for younger readers. Carousel Beautifully illustrated. Nursery World
