Reviews

"The softly coloured pictures convey all the emotion and complement the feel of the book excellently. A wonderful heart-warming story" * Parents in Touch * "A delicate, poignant, exquisitely drawn exploration of affinity with no need for a clumping moral" -- Kate Kellaway * Guardian * "A charming, beautifully illustrated parable about sibling love" -- Amanda Craig * The Times * "Beautifully illustrated with simple pictures that convey so much and an ending to make you feel uplifted. Wonderful" -- Heather Blackham * Carousel * "I found myself moved to tears by the implications of Croc and Bird's relationship: how family is what you make it, not what is expected by others, how you can feel isolated and alone amongst your kind and accepted and loved by those who are not" -- Melanie McGilloway * Library Mice *
