MEDIA REVIEWS

"It's no surprise Judith's work is still popular. It owes nothing to the vagaries of style or fashion. Her warmth and humanity are timeless." Michael Foreman

`Near perfection of form is embellished by clear, expressive illustrations. The pace is exactly right, the resolution totally satisfying.' Dorothy Butler, Babies Need Books.

`A modern classic.' The Independent.

`This book has enduring charm and young children will delight in the preposterous notion of a tiger creating mayhem in the house.' Junior Magazine

Praise for `Mog the Forgetful Cat':

`Grandparents are likely to get as much fun out of seeing it again as the new generation of fans just learning to read!' Choice Magazine

Praise for Goodbye Mog:

`Kerr's warmth, humour and honesty make this an engaging introduction to a difficult topic.' Financial Times

`Believable, amusing and moving.' Nursery World

`A supremely sensitive story.' The Times

Praise for `One Night in the Zoo':

`Lovely... uses soothing, pastel illustrations and exotic animals to make basic counting seem unintimidating.' Daily Telegraph

“Love love love it!”

A truly fabulous timeless book which has been much enjoyed on a (very) regular basis in our house and still is a firm favourite bedtime story with both of my children (2 & 4).

“Classic”

I recently bought this for my three month old niece.
Obviously she can't read it now, but hopefully she will grow up to love this book as much as I did when I was little.

“fun”

my two and a half year old has been enjoying this book for almost a year now and doesn't get tired of it. We enjoy reading it to her also.
Great pictures and other things to talk about in the background.
