“Giselle has a style all her own and has maximised her capacity for loose lines and scribbly colouring… allowing the textures to bring more touches of impulse and life to each character.” - Magpies Magazine
“Cowley’s poems are zany, original and full of delicious language. Giselle Clarkson’s illustration (reminiscent of Quentin Blake) is a perfect accompaniment to the poems, lending them even more expression and fun.” - BookTrust UK
