  • "Former Children's Laureate Browne consistently produces visually stunning and emotionally subtle books, and this is no exception...Tender, funny, reassuring and highly original, this is a book to share and cherish. Browne is, quite simply, a genius"

    Daily Mail
  • "Anthony Browne is the master of reassuring picturebooks about anxiety"

    Nicolette Jones, Children's Book of the Week, The Sunday Times
  • "It's a lovely read, especially if you have a young child who tends to worry about things that he or she has never experienced before. It's a very visual book with ... lots of illustrations teeming with details to discover with your child."

  • "Skilfully written and illustrated ... Very reassuring and superbly told, this story leaves you wanting more - maybe for first visits to the dentist, first day at school, swimming lessons and so on."

  • "A new Anthony Browne book is always a treat. Browne is the sort of author-illustrator who knows exactly how to describe the feelings a child goes through in ordinary everyday life, then picture them allegorically in ways that children just "get"... A fantastic romp...This is a truly special book"
