It's a lovely, rhymed story that both we as parents and the kids love ;) Beautiful illustrations, captivating flow of rhymes. We certainly recommend.

This is a fantastic book! My 3 year old boy absolutely loves it, as do I! It has wonderful rhymes and beautiful pictures, which both enhance an already charming story.

By Sarah Wilcox 19 Aug 2010 3

This is a beautiful story much loved by my son. I bought a copy as a present for a friend and was disappointed to discover when it arrived that it is a US edition, even though this is not marked on the description. Look out for US spelling "gray" rather than "grey" and the snail "hitching a ride" rather than "hitching a lift".

"Along with providing a resonant environmental message, the story lightly demonstrates that friendships come in all shapes and sizes. Publishers Weekly, starred review"
