Review:

Enchantingly simple text and the most lovely illustrations make this book one to treasure * Angels & Urchins * Currey's figures manage to be both human and rabbity and Shield's gentle, simple rhyming couplets make this a perfect bedtime book * Glasgow Herald * Within minutes I was feeling a warm nostalgia with its reminders of the comforting world of Beatrix Potter * Tremendously Two * Perfect for welcoming a new baby into the world * Books Monthly *
