MEDIA REVIEWS

Illustrated in black and white with splashes of red, this gentle story is a charming reminder to find the joy in tackling life at your own pace - The Bookseller, Editor's Choice

Minu conjures up huge sympathy for our tiny cyclist by using only the bare minimum of detail... It's the pictures that pack the punch. Although the book is intended for early years, the manga influence will appeal to older kids. (My comic-book-loving nine-year-old gave it "ten out of ten".) - The Times, Children's Book of the Week

This charming, exquisitely drawn debut story... contains barely 300 words, which are a masterclass in pathos... If you are looking for a story about the joys of tackling life at your own pace, then you would be hard pressed to find a more engaging example than this - Telegraph

It can be tough being the younger, smaller, slower kid... but a chance encounter with a slowly adventurous snail turns his thinking around: your own pace is the best pace. The pen and ink illustrations are as full of movement and life as they are uncluttered and streamlined, making this debut shine - Irish Independent

A very sweet picture book, filled with exquisite illustrations, all about taking life at your own pace and enjoying it all the more for doing so... This would be a great read for any child with older siblings that they are trying to keep up with - Mini Travellers

What a delightful book. I absolutely adore the illustrations, black and white drawing with minimal use of color - Southern Bookseller Review
