Customer reviews


'Although the book wasn't written specifically to teach children to read, its rhyming, repetitive language with easy-to-read speech bubbles makes it ideal.' The Guardian

'An all-involving tale beautifully told.. in the lilting rhythm... that encourages the beginner.' The Independent
