  • Dick King-Smith at his best . . . Don't be deceived by its apparent simplicity: it stands reading and re-reading, and each time you chuckle at something different

  • Larger than life characters leap from the pages of this engaging and humourous story

    Junior Education
  • This simple yet engaging adventure tale wsill amuse young readers and give them a taste of Dick King-Smith's unique, often amusing, narrative style

    Through the Looking Glass
  • An unusual theme that gives rise to a great deal of humour . . . The illustrations are jaunty and the writing uncluttered and unsentimental

    Nursery World
  • Told with the exuberant brand of humour we associate with Dick King-Smith . . . An excellent buy
