Reviews

'This funny and original story is told in a playful, conversational tone ... The scratchy, Quentin Blake-esque illustrations are fantastic fun and offer plenty to explore and discover. Text and image together call to mind the darker outings of Dahl and Blake (think Revolting Rhymes).'
-- Inis Magazine

'The text varies from lyrical alliteration, to straightforward talking, to chaotic scrawling over the page providing the reader with a variety of reading experiences within the story. The illustrations are pen and smudgy ink, and add to the vitality and eccentricity of the story and characters.'
-- School Librarian

'The pictures are colourful and dramatic, with a lot of fun details to pore over ... the book has some quite sophisticated ideas that will make you smile.'
-- Lothian Life

'...Tim Archbold gives us plenty to pore over and chuckle at in his droll, comic book and somewhat Quentin Blake style illustrations.'
-- Books for Keeps

'A very quirky story, brilliantly illustrated to add to the style, character and Scottish sense of humour with which it is written ... An hilarious, tongue-in-cheek tale'
-- EYE: Early Years Educator

'A great book which gives a real flavour of Scotland and its culture.'
-- Creative Steps
