MEDIA REVIEWS
Hirst's beguilingly child-like illustrations give the story an affecting authenticity. * The Herald *
Like the best books by authors such as John Burningham, it presents the reader with a story that works on different levels. A picture book that really does stand out. Daisy Hirst is a picture book creator to watch. -- Kate Kellaway * The Observer *
...a hopeful and endearing story about moving house, making new friends and playing imaginative games. * Parent Talk *
It is not only a sensitive and engaging picture book but also a very enjoyable story. * The Good Book Guide *
Hirst's original debut walks a wonderful line between fanciful and realistic, with loose, buoyant art and an offbeat story that finds a child's innermost truth. * The New York Times *
