"A super book for young readers" Parents in Touch "The lively illustrations really enliven the story and make this a super book for young readers" parentsintouch.co.uk "With short, pacy chapters and lively illustrations this delightful story will appeal to newly independent readers. The message that it's possible to have too much of a good thing is gently and humorously presented. An entertaining title from a publisher that specialises in multicultural books." -- Claire Larson www.readplus.co.uk "The non-preachy, mixed-race family theme slots quite naturally into this delightful read for age six and upwards" -- Mary Arigan Irish Examiner
