NI4Kids "An imaginative introduction to the rich poor divide, with dream-like illustrations to bring the satire alive." Junior "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 Keepsshow more
