"... brilliantly structured so that it holds the interest when read aloud rather as a good joke must before arriving at its punchline ... Nick Sharratt's bright, simple pictures look almost as though an inspired child had produced them - and that may well be why children respond to them so warmly" Observer "Praise for the Daisy books: "Sure-fire winners to pre-schoolers and juniors" The Bookseller "The determined Daisy is to be a bridesmaid at Auntie Sue's wedding, but doesn't do dresses ... A compromise is found but not before Nick Sharratt has had fun illustrating the array of dresses with ruffles, bows and sashes" The Bookseller "Gray's economical, repetitive text is ably assisted by Sharratt's bold, expressive lines and colours: Daisy's eyebrows alone are an essay in rebellion!" Booktrusted News "If your youngsters have been lucky enough to enjoy an earlier book called Eat Your Peas, it's a safe bet that they will like these stories too" South Wales Argus
