Huddersfield Daily Examiner
A perfect series for new readers.
Parents In Touch
Illustrated throughout in a quirky, elegant, 1950s style, in a distinctive palette of red, white and black. Smith's off-the-wall humour and sense of fun will keep both children and their parents entertained from beginning to end. An utterly charming book for emerging readers.
Booktrust
Alex T. Smith is a rising star in children's books. The text is ideal for early readers, combining simple language with humour and page-turning entertainment. It is his skill in creating drama out of bright comedy that makes the book such a compulsive read.
