Jody's Beans Press Reviews

A very appealing picture salient facts about a goose from the egg hatching to the life of the full-grown goose. The School Librarian on My Goose Betsy; Gentle, thought-provoking, and a real delight to read and read again... The pictures are enchanting, with lots of tiny details to pore over... A book to truly warm your heart. The Guardian on Jody's Beans; Gentle Giant Octopus transforms the creature's reputation from gruesome to awesome, through inventive, magical illustrations and lyrical narrative, helping the reader to take in an impressive range of facts without effort. The Times Educational Supplement, Primary; Full of facts and surprises...a distinguished array of artists and authors, and a (narrative) approach more serendipitous than encyclopaedic. Each book has an entirely original slant on its subject. The Guardian; The best information books are so interesting that they make you want to find out more. The Read and Wonder books do just that. Margaret Meek, Emeritus Reader, Institute of Education, University of London
