'[Margaret Sturton is] most definitely a talent to watch with interest.' - Books for Keeps
'This is a charming picture book about identity and acceptance. The colourful illustrations are full of warmth, personality and gentle humour, adding another layer of depth to the tale ... The expressions and body language of the characters enable readers to recognise a range of different emotions, which should help them to develop skills of empathy and emotional awareness.' - BookTrust
'Margaret Sturton announces herself as a major picture book talent with her debut... a wonderful story about identity and love, delivered lightly but most effectively.' - Andrea Reece, LoveReading4Kids
