“My children are six and eight-years old. They loved the rhyme and cadence of this story and compared it to one of their favourite children’s authors, Julia Donaldson…The story embodies playful mischief, suspense, surprise and a crisply satisfying resolution. The detailed illustrations by Hannah Sames are at once endearing, captivating and whimsical. Our family eagerly awaits a sequel.” ~ A Winter
