Reviews

"A delicate echo of Burningham's much-lovedMr Gumpy's Outing"
Guardian||"The book invites children to identify the characters, and to point to them and to lost objects. The drawings carry their sophisticated skill lightly. An ideal step forwards from board books"
Children's Book of the Week, The Sunday Times
