    Review quote
    Exuberant rhyming story celebrating the chaos of everyday life and the power of the imagination. Independent on Sunday Its inventive language and detailed collage illustrations... will amuse children of three and over... This is a simple story but it zips along and ...the language really fizzes Daily Telegraph The entertainment, humour, and exuberance of it all arises from what Dad finds... Mahy's text rollicks along in rhythm and rhyme, and Polly Dunbar's graphics are akin to a fireworks display on the page; words, phrases and pictorial images metaphorically pop up and explode like stardust over the double spreads School Librarian Mahy and Dunbar are a stunning team, the visual dexterity of one playing with the verbal twists and turns of the other.
