Review quote

Inkpen's pale watercolours against a white background give a cool, calm feel, while the use of pull-out pages and sequences of pictures give an animated feel. Beginner readers will be able to tackle the simple text, but it's a great story to share with all ages. * Junior, July 2000 * The easy-to-read text with its wealth of sparkling vocabulary makes this a classic story to be treasured and read time and time again * EYE Magazine * Beautifully illustrated and full of the kinds of visual surprises kids love. * What's On (July 1993) * The story is charming and the illustrations uncluttered ... an ideal book to base work around, to explore dreams and magic, and the notion that something so ordinary can become something so exciting * Child Education * A delightful story with a surprise on every page * Child Care * This Inkpen classic features some of the best examples of fold-outs ever... although thanks to some very enthusiastic young hands our copy's mostly held together with sticky-tape now. * The Guardian (Aidan Moffat) *
