Customer reviews


'A tale of adventure that has at its heart a sense of being and belonging, knowing and hoping. A story every child (and grown-up!) will cherish for years, Nop is cosy and comforting, exquisitely beautiful in all ways and filled with a sense of magical possibility.' Fallen Star Stories

'Surprising, dreamlike and beautiful, and drawn by Caroline Magerl with a Quentin Blake-ish freedom.' The Sunday Times

'This is an enchanting, gently lyrical tale of a small bear and his quest for adventure. Illustrated in line and watercolour, glowing with life, the pictures evoke the dusty atmosphere of the junk shop, followed by Nop's joyous journey.' The School Librarian
