Reviews

Ideal if you're looking for something a bit cheeky, a bit naughty, and lots of fun. Recommended. -- Keith Dudhnath * TheBookbag.co.uk * Vibrant illustrations full of colour, energy and life couple the text in an equally humorous way. * Early Years Educator * A very enjoyable cautionary tale with flowing text and really funny illustrations. Children will love this one. * Parents In Touch * A book which is likely to bring smiles to many children's faces. * The School Librarian * Funny cautionary tale with wonderful rhyming text. * EYE *
