Man Who Wore All His Clothes Press Reviews

* I can't wait for the next Gaskitt story! Literacy and Learning. [Now you don't have to! The second title, The Woman Who Won Things, also out this month!] * The first in a series about the Gaskitts, who must surely be destined for greatness. The Sunday Times * Huge fun and ideal for early readers. The Independent on Sunday * This book is a joy, made the more so by McEwen's bright, clear, funny and touching pictures, which capture perfectly the Ahlberg humour. Every page is a triumph, text and illustration in partnership drawing the reader on through this romp of a story, which shimmers with life and laughter. Long live the Gaskitts. TES Primary * A delight from beginning to end. The pictures are outstanding and mark the advent of a really inspired illustrator. The Financial Times
