The Big Green Book Press Reviews

"An innovative pop-up environmental extravaganza about going green. This bright child's book (which is hardback so it's good and strong for little hands) helps younger ones to be pro-active in saving the planet. Pull the tabs, lift the flaps and open up the amazing pops and discover a greener world. A green book with a green message .. and great for families and children aged five to seven years." - Melanie Cowie, Cornwall Today

"It's packed to the brim with information and has more flaps and pop-ups than you can shake a stick at.. Educational, yet fun.. There's a barrage of facts but it never feels overwhelming.. It's a beautiful package, with clear, cartoony illustrations, and impressive paper engineering." - The Bookbag

"Any child will be absolutely delighted with this fun book. ..with all the colourful illustrations, your child will love it." - Jo Milne, South Wales Argus
