“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).
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.
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.
