Reviews

This rollicking and rhythmical tale is a heart-warming treat. Red House Children's Book Award Rhyming text makes this colourful, jaunty tale a pleasure to read aloud. Irish Times All you can wish for are encores galore from Hodgkinson. Brava! -- Jane Doonan The School Librarian It looks to me as though Jo Hodgkinson is an author/illustrator to watch. -- Morag Charlwood Armadillo Magazine Fast, rhythmic text and the important message of judging people by their talent, not their size.
