Reader Reviews


This is a very good book. I think it would be a great gift to give a little one. I hope you make more books like this because I just love this one

This is a truly wonderful book for young kids and older kids like me. It takes me back to a time when everthing was a lot simpler. My children loved it

Mary Flynn on 19th October 2010

An excellent, original idea with a novel and refreshing, unique narrative style that will have the little ones enthralled from the outset! Once they've read this they'll be full of rigour, fresh with the knowledge that there's nothing quite like the feel
