Review quote

"A lovely book." * Parents in Touch * Oliver's linocut prints wonderfully extol the virtues of the rock pool and its inhabitants as children eagerly seek out the animals hidden on each page, the excitement mounting as they lift the flaps to discover more secrets. -- Read Plus * Read Plus * All in all, the book is a testament to Oliver's artistic strength and writing skills as well as to her understanding of how to inspire and encourage children in their search for knowledge. * Magpies Magazine *
