Review:

'This is one of those delightful books from the Scottish publisher, Floris, whose stories and drawings are so appealing. The mystical tales covers all the seasons.' -- Vermont Country Sampler, May 2017 'This book is illustrated throughout with beautiful, colourful pictures by Daniela Drescher that have much of interest in them and are a real delight to linger over and discuss with the young reader... I thoroughly recommend this lovely book, which I think would be enjoyed by children of all ages.' --Rosemary Usselman, New View, Summer 2010 'The stories vary in length and complexity, but all of them fascinate. This is a handsome resource for sharing and for independent readers to enjoy on their own.' -- Books for Keeps, July 2010 'Daniela Drescher has a sense of colour and balance in her delicate, almost dreamlike illustrations that make you want to linger over them ... well suited to the armchair snuggle with a wealth of lovely stories to share.' -- Yvonne Coppard, Carousel, Autumn/Winter 2010
