Reviews

This stunning book - theme and pictures both - is based on a motif of great simplicity and power...a lovely end. Observer The most brilliant fusion of picture and theme. T.E.S. Ruth Brown's spooky read-aloud book pretends to be scarier than it is: even the youngest listener should be delighted by the punch line. Time Magazine The simplicity of the text and the expressive beauty of the illustrations build up the tension to culminate in a surprising ending in this stunning picture book. Booktrust
