Emotionally charged illustrations match a text that conveys a serious message with humour and sensitivity.
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.
The simple words are accompanied by strikingly original pictures which convey images of feelings and invite interpretative chat, a very useful and terrific book.
A powerful little book with a super strong positive message! Handles overcoming a bully wonderfully.
Speaks loudly to readers about the need to share big problems to help overcome them. Expressive illustrations and clever use of shading help reinforce Kes Gray's simple, but emotionally engaging text. A valuable story.
The message is given with such a humorous lightness of touch that it comes over as an engaging story. The illustrations, full of funny but sensitive and understanding animals, are a super match for the text.
A touching tale that resonates with empathy and poignancy.
A powerful and comforting book about caring for your friends and not tolerating bullying.
Praise for Mum and Dad Glue: "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."
An empowering story.
