A fantastic story

Early Years Educator

A wonderfully humorous book with delightful illustrations both adults and children will enjoy

My Weekly

The straightforward text is personalised with simple dialogue that should make reading aloud fun, and Bartlett's sturdy, unbordered double-page spread paintings, in a style so unaffected that it resembles children's own artwork, are a rainbow of fruit colors - strawberry, red, lemon, yellow, lime green, and more. Great for lap sharing or use with small groups.
