A must-have for the holidays -- Sarah Kingsford Sunday Express For those of a rebellious nature or children with a book phobia, this book conquers the conundrum of the boring book. This is a great beginner book for reluctant readers ... it will engage the hidden imagination and creativity of all ages. This book flies in the face of convention; children are encouraged to splat it, soak it, rip it, wear it, tear it, bling it, break it, whack it - almost anything - just don't eat it. A great book for those wet afternoons - with plenty of choice for both boys and girls. It can be returned to time and time again. -- Martina Needham Inis Full of hilarious and creative things to draw and do ... hours of fun Mumsnet My kids have loved it ... There is no other book like it! Mumsnet This book will get drawn all over and it will be absolutely adored. It hugely encourages a child's creativity and really brings books to life -- Becky Goddard-Hill

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