Smashing. * The Guardian * Terrific ... irresistibly entertaining. * The Daily Telegraph * I defy anybody not to laugh out loud ... It's also uncannily accurate. * Books for Your Children * Eight legends retold with pith and punch ... The strip-cartoon style makes the stories feel new. * The Independent on Sunday * Featured/recommended in Greece article * Travel for Kids *
