February 2015 Book of the Month
Beautiful illustrations make this witty book of ‘heads, bodies and legs’ a delight. What starts as a Platypus can be swiftly altered into a ‘Tratypus’ or a ‘Tratysh’ while a regular Opossum with its sweet young on its back can become and unlikely-looking Gotossum with a remarkably green face! The extensive number of choices that can be created makes this a very satisfying book.
As you can see from the photo our young reviewer, Ben, loved it.
What is a Treevipus? A fantastic creature with the head of a trunkfish, the body of a weevil and the tail of a platypus, of course! In this reissue of this popular novelty title, a host of creatures presented in humorous pictures and informative captions take on new names, and a hilarious new identity when their heads, bodies and legs are swapped around as the pages are flipped.
With a magical world to get lost in, and exotic names to relish, this fabulously inventive book will grab children of all ages. Independent
This is clever stuff, beautiful and great fun. Guardian
By far the best of recent picture books. The animals look as if they were the wild imaginings of a 16th century explorer whose brain was addled by too many years in the tropics. Mensa Quest
Great for tweaking even the most timid imagination. School Library Journal
Clever and eye-catching - 1000 fantastic combinations with outlandish descriptions. Sunday Times 5 stars
