Children will love this funny and big-hearted tale. An absolute
must for fans of picture books by the immensely talented duo of
Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo. *
Donaldson's plain yet rhythmic cumulative text and Scheffler's artwork complement each other wonderfully in this most accomplished and satisfying picture book. * Books For Keeps *
Another piece of Julia Donaldson brilliance! * Toppsta *
