Even small families recognise themselves in the Large family... Jill Murphy's latest insightful snapshot of parenthood [is] a thumpingly entertaining picture book about elephants, and us. * The Sunday Times *
The Large family books are a personal favourite - I can so sympathise with Mrs Large... Another brilliant story. Read it and smile. * Angels and Urchins *
