Review
a joyful read about an outsider who finds acceptance on his own terms... there's also a simple moral about tolerance and daring to be different. Junior This delightful picture book is written in lively rhyming text with vivacious illustrations. Junior A rhyming story with superb illustrations... wonderfully funny. Independent Witty match of rollicking rhyme and bold colour. Guardian A fantastically funny and wonderfully colourful romp of a picture book. All toddlers should grow up reading this or hearing their parents read it aloud to them. Daily Telegraph
