Reviews

In the great tradition of bright and colourful children's books, the rhymes tick over with an infectious rhythm bordering on addictiveness for the listener. Bournemouth Daily Echo A bright, commerical title for summer with a witty counting rhyme that is perfect to read aloud. Bookseller To all those people who have ever enjoyed reciting rhymes with a younger child - get this book! Great fun! School Librarian 'Any child you read this to will fall about laughing at the octopus who gets the giggles. Catchy rhymes and repetition will get children joining in with you.' Waterstone's Books Quarterly
