Reviews

The soft yet energetic illustrations are a perfect foil to the text and make this an altogether charming experience. Jane Massey knows how to get the best from watercolour and textures, while Joyce Dunbar knows how to be original. What better way to introduce little ones to a love of language and image? Books for Keeps An engaging, alliterative, tongue twisting read-aloud...the illustrations are fun, and certainly hold the attention of young readers. The School Librarian
