Reviews

This is a very funny, most colourful book about sibling rivalry with hilarious scenes and great expressions. * Review Reader, Lovereading 4 Kids *
Daisy Hirst's Alphonse, That is Not Ok To Do! is an empathy and understanding-building picture book that every family book shelf should have, since it relates to a scenario that almost every child has found him or herself in. [...] An uproarious, colourful exploration of what is not ok to do, by the creator of the fabulous The Girl with the Parrot on Her Head. * The Herald *
Hirst's approach is playful and eye-catching. [...] It's a story written with a benignly anarchic wit - and, refreshingly, it comes with no moral tacked on. * The Observer *
Daisy Hirst's narrative voice is spot on, her monsters are adorable and I love the chucklesome humour in her illustrations, which are a perfect complement to that deliciously droll text of hers. Alphonse and Natalie could run and run... * Red Reading Hub *
A fun, perceptive and colourful story * Juno *
A heart-warming, tender story which will stand up to much re-reading. * Carousel *
