MEDIA REVIEWS
Nadia Shireen's lively picture book is sure to bring a smile to children's faces. With delightful illustrations and something of the same quirky humour that characterised her acclaimed Good Little Wolf, this is a fun and engaging story about friendships and working together. Children will love exploring all the colourful spreads of the carnival, featuring all kinds of unexpected circus animals from Alice the Bearded Duck to Nancy the Amazing Fire-Eating Lizard, not to mention a snoozing ice-cream seller and a bison selling balloons * Booktrust website *
It's bright, bold and packed with fun illustrations leading children along with a nice tale - and lesson - about valuing friendship. * Tidy Books blog *
It's a great book for toddlers and young children who have just started school or pre-school as they will be able to relate to the characters and talk to you about their friends (and "enemies" !) and how they feel about power struggles in the playground. The illustrations are very cute and are packed with details and little visual jokes that will have you pausing on each page before turning over to continue with the story. * The Madhouse Family Review blog *

The illustrations are brilliant, the characters warm and the visual jokes delightful. While the children will enjoy the story, parents will love the bag of Cold Hard Cash, the penguin motorbike stunt team and other amusements nestling in the background in a very Aardman way.

For those who have not yet read Nadia's first book Good Little Wolf, do search it out. It's probably one of the best children's books created. 9/10

* Chopsy Baby Online Parenting Magazine *

A beautiful book which is suitable for young children. Filled with beautiful pictures which accompany the story perfectly, this book will appeal to both girls and boys of all ages.
The book has a great message - friends are there in both the good and bad times and should be kept by your sides through thick and thin.
