Reviews

While the text carries the message, the pictures contribute significantly to this excellent story.

The artwork is engaging, the text has subtle rhythms and rhymes
School Librarian
A touching, tender book.

Understanding and honest
The Bookseller
It has the usual message that Mum and Dad still love the little boy ... but its key meaning is something more than that. This book shows how the strength to come to terms with a divorce is within the child and not dependent on the love of the parents. This is an important message for a child to learn at any age and in any circumstance

"An incredibly powerful book about a boy coming to terms with his parents' divorce: a difficult subject treated with a wonderfully light touch. I'm a huge Lee Wildish fan and think he's definitely a name to watch for the future. I defy you to read this without a lump in your throat."
Kate Skipper, Waterstones Buyer
Stunning ... resonates with empathy and poignancy

An excellent book aimed squarely at young children
Nursery World
Lee Wildish's illustrations are lovely. The characters have a rough charm that really draws you in - there are hints of Quentin Blake's ink drawings, but Wildish's style is very much of its own.
Bookbag
A touching tale that resonates with empathy and poignancy.
