Review quote

"An imaginative introduction to the rich-poor divide, with dream-like illustrations to bring the satire alive" Junior 20040323 "This book is a demonstration of the sheer virtuosity of Riddell's craft. Few other artists could describe the features of a desperate bear with such perfection" Books for Keeps 20040519 "As morality tales go, this is definitely one of the best ...The book is great for adults with its cleverly hidden message and the illustration is indeed fantastic" -- Jayne Bennett South Wales Argus 20040217show more
