Review quote

[...] this extraordinary book is a total delight. Red Reading Hub delightfully and eccentrically funny The Herald "Du Iz Tak by Caron Ellis proves the brain's ability to understand new languages. [...] Silly words to read, and fun to interpret." Irish Times, Children's Books of the Year recommended by Olivia Hope The two great joys of this Carson Ellis picture book are the vibrant and quirky illustrations, and the humorous and intuitive invented bug language. Ellis manages to give a strong character feel to the little insects, and young and old readers will be repeating 'ma nazoot', 'rup furt' and all the other little phrases to each other for weeks afterwards. Perfect for fans of Jon Klassen. BookTrustshow more
