Review quote

"This stunning book - theme and pictures both - is based on a motif of great simplicity and power...a lovely end." * Observer * "The most brilliant fusion of picture and theme." * T.E.S. * "Ruth Brown's spooky read-aloud book pretends to be scarier than it is: even the youngest listener should be delighted by the punch line." * Time Magazine * "The simplicity of the text and the expressive beauty of the illustrations build up the tension to culminate in a surprising ending in this stunning picture book." * Booktrust *
