"a super concept, guaranteed to have instant appeal to young children. Great fun for bedtime reading - look out for others in the series" * www.parentsintouch.co.uk *
"Brilliant fun to read aloud" * The Bookseller *
"so much fun to be had with puppet books ... this will engage any child at any age and has lots of scope for interaction. I love the idea that Boris has a little sister who is initially much quieter than her brother". * The Bookseller *
"It's interactive, both for the person controlling Doris the puppet, and for the readers who are encouraged to react to the story all the way through. The puppet has proved to be great fun for children, especially if you add quirky voices, and it's a true feel-good book." -- Rachel Newcombe * Baby Surrey/London/Hampshire, Local Family Lifestyle *
