...the picture-book giant for small children...one of my favourite books ever to read aloud. * The Times *
This is a delightful book and a firm favourite with pre-schoolers. The glorious illustrations encourage comment and observation, while the rhythm of the text soon has children chanting along. * Independent *
A lovely rhythmic poem that small children love to recite. * Daily Telegraph *
