MEDIA REVIEWS
Original, thought provoking and very funny. * The Bookseller *
Wonderfully simple and evocative * INIS magazine *
An ideal book for thought-provoking inspiration. . . the story telling should test a child's curious mind, expanding their imagination and allow them to engage in the complex topic of philosophy, in a simplified, lighthearted manner. Yet amusing and intriguing enough for the older reader, allowing us to briefly reflect on our own philosophical thoughts and aspirations. * Association of Illustrators *
A simple and delightfully funny story for the very young. * Newbury Weekly News *
Equal parts laugh-out-loud funny and profound, a bold tale of daring and bravery, with a little existentialism thrown in .. . a wonderfully inspirational and quirky picture book that will strike a chord with readers of all ages, especially those who might be small but happen to dream big. * Junior *
