Review quote

" It's a cute but not overly girly (there's a scary cave!) tale of friendship, and Moriuchi's child-like illustrations are as dazzling as the story itself. My three year old oohed and added all the way through." -- Bournemouth Daily Echo 20071102 "A story about the power of friendship...told using language that is dreamy and poetic. The sparkly cover will entice children. A gentle happy story for under fives." -- School Librarian 20071201 "The lyrical language and affinity between the two main characters is beautifully matched with colourful, stylised artwork." -- Books For Keeps 20080601 "An uplifting and touching bedtime story about friendship and the rewards to be found by helping others. With heartwarming pictures and a delightfully flittering cover, it's a story that will ensure sweat dreams." -- Junior 20080605
