Reviews

  • You would not have thought it possible to improve upon Hilaire Belloc's cautionary tale of Jim but it lends itself beautifully to Mini Grey's insouciant illustration style

    Dinah Hall, Sunday Telegraph
  • Distinctive illustrations, a pop-up snarling lion, lift-up flaps and some additional jokes do justice to Belloc's classic castic poem. A dark delight

    Sally Morris, Daily Mail
  • Mini Grey's dramatic paper-folding illustrations add an extra dimension to Belloc's original. Her fold-out plan of the zoo, complete with warnings and comments, is witty and charming while also standing as an incisive warning about a world in which health and safety has become a make-believe all of its own

    Julia Eccleshare, Guardian
  • The enduring popularity of Hilaire Belloc's most famous Cautionary Tale combined with award-winner Mini Grey's lively and generous illustrations make this a true winner

    The Bookseller
  • A picture book that not merely gives the original Belloc a new lease of life but also challenges its lucky readers as to what exactly a full "reading" of a picture book might involve

    Robert Dunbar, The Irish Times
