Reviews

Praise for 'Alice in Wonderland':

"This is a real Alice for the present day, but nonetheless one it is easy to image living the extraordinary adventure Lewis Carroll wrote for her." Quentin Blake

"Emma Chichester Clark's intelligent update of Alice in Wonderland makes it more accessible and less frightening than Lewis Carroll's original, complete with John Tenniel's dark, prickly Victorian pictures. Girls of 5+ should enjoy it." Amanda Craig, The Times

Praise for 'Melrose and Croc':'Full of bright detail, this is a picture book young readers could well dream about as being the next best thing to entering its pages.' The Independent
