Critic Reviews

“While the text carries the message, the pictures contribute significantly to this excellent story.”

An incredibly powerful book about a boy coming to terms with his parents' divorce: a difficult subject treated with a wonderfully light touch. I'm a huge Lee Wildish fan and think he's definitely a name to watch for the future. I defy you to read this without a lump in your throat. - Kate Skipper, Waterstones Buyer

Lee Wildish's illustrations are lovely. The characters have a rough charm that really draws you in - there are hints of Quentin Blake's ink drawings, but Wildish's style is very much of its own. - Bookbag

An excellent book aimed squarely at young children. - Nursery World

A touching tale that resonates with empathy and poignancy. - Junior

A touching, tender book. - Angels & Urchins
