Mr Tiger, Betsy and the Blue Moon is the first in what is likely to be a popular series' The School Librarian.

Dyslexia friendly' Evening Standard, Books of the Year. 'This dyslexia-friendly title, full of enchanting illustrations from Nick Maland, is a very playful read' Scotsman, Books of the Year.
