Matty Takes Off! Press Reviews

Miriam Moss has a sure feel for a story and, combined with the bold and cuddly illustrations by the creator of the Daisy books, it's a delightful bedtime read. * Brighton Argus * This is a gloriously detailed book that will be a joy to return to again and again. * Write Away * Children who are as apprehensive as they are excited about going on holiday will enjoy this tale of Matty bear and Frampton, his cat. * Nursery World * Considering my four-year-old son loves Matty the bear so much,they don't seem to have a lot in common. Matty is a very particular kind of bear. His house has everything in its place - if only my son's room was so tidy! Sussex author Miriam Moss, with more than 70 children's books to her name, has a sure feel for a story and, combined with the bold and cuddly illustrations by the creator of the Daisy books, it's a delightful bedtime read. As materialistic Matty packs for a trip to see his sister, he loads his car so high his treasured possessions end up all over the road. Relived of this burden, he gives up being tidy and heads off in search of adventure - proving deep down bears and four-year-olds think alike. -- Brothwell, David * Brighton Argus, The (series) *
