Reviews

This picture book throbs with sunshine. A stunning book. * The Independent * ...simple, repetitive narrative...accompanied by bold, vibrant spreads. Handa's Surprise, published seven years ago, has become a classroom classic, and I have no doubt that this new title will become a firm favourite. * The Bookseller *
