I have been thrilled with the responses from teachers. Here are a few of them.


I love the books!!!! I've been reading them and will drop them to the library after half term. They're brilliant. The poetry and language is incredible!!!! Quite challenging for year 3 or 4 which is really good... We're always looking for good picture books that extend their vocabulary.

It is a masterpiece of art and literature which had us delighting at every turn of the page. I haven’t enjoyed verse narration so much since Vikram Seth, and you are a serious rival to his verbal fluency...We love the way that you introduce exciting words from the start, and are just sorry that our grandchildren are secondary age now.

Glorious illustration, wonderful words, charismatic characters ! My grandson is raving about it! The words just sing their way into your heart . A must read for girls and boys alike with vocabulary to stretch their imagination.

Well up to the standard of the previous books, if not even better, Snippy the Crab's Bandstand Blast Off finds our eponymous crustacean mesmerised by musical sounds drifting on the air from an al fresco jazz band. Excellent illustrations and a story to delight and amuse all ages!
