Reviews

  • A riot of nonsense and adventure, may well become a classic in the great English nonsense tradition

    Observer
  • Joyously surreal, set in landscapes full of toffee, deferential choirs of badgers, heavenly water-slides and velvet chairs . . . Their pachydermous protagonist governs a benevolent plutocracy- but the books' great joy is the frequent sly and subtle lampooning of his capitalist pomp

    Guardian
  • The books are very funny, installing a large cast of unlikely characters . . . in a world of mildly squiffy logic . . . And the illustrations are among Quentin Blake’s best work, scrawls and splotches that finally and unarguably distil character. But most important, this is political satire of a high order — Animal Farm for pre-teens, but wittier and more relevant to our own world

    Independent
  • If there was ever a children's series generating fanatical, "cult" adoration, this is it. And deservedly so.
