Review quote

"Amusing tale" * TES * "The sheer daftness of the ideas will keep kids' attention clamped eagerly to every page" * SHE Magazine * "Dick King-Smith needs no introduction and these two tales will win new fans... Would be suitable for early independent readers - but adults won't mind having them read to them either" * The School Libraria * "The two stories work well together. Both include amusing incidents and comments likely to encourage children to think about their own lives. New readers should be able to read the text for themselves. It is clearly presented with a good number of helpful black and white illustrations. The stories are also good to read aloud to children aged about four to seven who should enjoy the strings of numbers, and rhymes like botty/potty and me/wee" * The Junior Bookshelf *show more
