Reviews

Brightly amusing artwork.. likely to be deservedly popular. * The School Librarian * There are clever twists, as well as glorious pictures by Holly Swain. -- Nicholas Tucker * Independent * Jaunty fairytale with a wink to The Princess and the Pea and a nod to Pickle-Chiffon Pie * New York Times * A novel twist on an old tale * Booktrust * Ideal for sharing and for newly confident readers...an extremely appealing book * Bookbag *
