  • Just occasionally, a gentle funny little book pops up in which the story, tone, illustrations and even cover are so perfectly attuned to each other, and to the children for whom it is intended, that it lifts one's spirits. This is such a book

    The Daily Mail
  • A charming journey of discovery at sea for eight year olds and above

    The Daily Telegraph
