Review

...fabulously illustrated ... -- Book Reviewer Aldershot News and Mail There is a lot here to make reading this book over and over again a lot of fun. The poem is fun to read, and the pictures will last a long time. And if it can prevent any more boys being eaten by lions, then it will have done a good job. Bookwitch The quality shines out on every page, blending the text and pictures seamlessly. The sight of Ponto looking bashfully over his shoulder as he sits by a dismembered leg is absolutely hilarious, and on the other side of the page, Jim's little head with Xs for eyes will strike a chord with every child who's ever pulled the head off a Lego man. It all sounds horribly violent, but in fact it's spot on, however sensitive or squeamish you and yours might be. Jim is the sort of book that you'll treasure for years to come. The Book Bag The enduring popularity of Hilaire Belloc's most famous Cautionary Tale combined with award-winner Mini Grey's lively and generous illustrations make this a true winner. The Bookseller Mini Grey has taken Hillarie Belloc's classic cautionary tale of Jim and illustrated it in her own inimitable style. She really has done justice to this wickedly funny poem.
