Reviews

* Steeped in as much symbolism as you dare extract... A fascinating book that will afford hours of imaginative unravelling. The Guardian * A haunting, strange story with the feel of a Brothers Grimm tale. It will say a great deal to any child with brothers or sisters, and the pictures are - naturally - quite superb. Practical Parenting


Browne's softly illustrated and reassuringly lilting narratives certainly suit small children, but his books' life themes are relevant to all. * Time Out *
