Lovely -

My nearly 4-year-old little girl loved hearing this story for the first time tonight. Absolutely mesmerised by it and totally absorbed. The pictures are great. Lots of detail. Love the rhyming too! Think it will be a regular at bedtime!

A fun and engaging book -

This is a great bedtime book for my 3-year-old who loves it. Just the right length story and my daughter likes the rhyming verses.

Fabulous text! -

Fabulous rhyming text and detailed illustrations. My 3-year-old loves this, as do I. I can see it being a firm favourite for many years to come.

We love this book - quirky and engaging -

A firm favourite in our house at bedtime that somehow appeals to a 3, 6 and 7-year-old at the same time. Great rhyming text tells this slightly left-field tale, accompanied by detailed illustrations that bring Monty Python - from what little of that I've seen - to mind! Quite possibly it'll be one of those stories that'll be remembered years later because it's so curious. On those merits, highly recommended!
