Praise for 'Melrose and Croc': 'Full of bright detail, this is a picture book young readers could well dream about as being the next best thing to entering its pages.
The Independent

'Two irresistible new characters from the creator of the popular Blue Kangaroo series.'

'A heart-warming tale of how friendships begin... This book is a wonderful tactile experience, from the shimmery glittery cover... to the gentle watercolours inside, which are printed on the creamiest of papers.'
The Irish Times

'It delights children but adults will appreciate the period evocation of the festive-season cities and the off-season seaside.'
The Sunday Times

'Incredibly touching story.'
Primary Times

'Gorgeous Christmassy story about friendship.'
Angels and Urchins
