MEDIA REVIEWS
The first in a witty and beautifully designed series for emerging readers... Vulliamy's crisp, lively images - black and white, with a single colour on every page, plus diagrams and comical details - deserve to be savoured -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times *
Toad of Toad Hall would enjoy this as bedtime reading... Vulliamy's perky drawings are as accessible as a superior comic and guaranteed, alongside Hughes's racey narrative, to get young readers behind the wheel * Observer *

This collaboration is one that many a children's literature enthusiast has been hoping for and awaiting with great trepidation for a long, long time. It does not disappoint, for Dixie O'Day in the Fast Lane is a gorgeous little book. Visually, the book is stunning. The design of the book is also immaculate and so attractive...
This feast of beautifully nostalgic merriment will definitely be a winner with adults, but Dixie O'Day in the Fast Lane is first and foremost a cleverly written chapter book for newly independent readers...
Dixie O'Day in the Fast Lane is a little book to truly treasure, which has all the ingredients to become a firm favourite with little readers.

* Library Mice blog *
This is perfect for new readers with fun and lively illustrations punctuating the story throughout * The Bookseller *
Children of this age will chuckle at the first of a series by mother and daughter duo Shirley Hughes and Clara Vulliamy... it stars friends Dixie O'Day and his sidekick Percy. Daring Dixie loves custard creams, watching cookery programmes and driving his sports car to the seaside with Percy. The book also includes maps and a list of games to play on car journeys, just the ticket for the festive season. -- Emma Lee-Potter * Daily Express *
