What Reviewers Are Saying
"With its quirky illustrations, surprise ending and rhyming text that echoes the rhythm pattern of The Night Before Christmas, this is fun read-aloud that leaves plenty of gaps for readers to fill." * Red Reading Hub * "At the heart of this book there is a story of empathy and acceptance, of knowing that not everything is familiar and that this is not always a bad thing...In world that is turning in on itself, one that is showing worrying signs of becoming insular and unwelcoming, it is books like these that will help children to become well-rounded, welcoming people." * EYE * "A lovely salute to community, embracing even the stinkiest member...with bonhomie. the artwork is a gripping mix of shadows and striking elements of colour. Curiouser and curiouser - and altogether a pleasure to experience." * Kirkus Starred Review * "Bate's illustrations are homely and sympathetic." * Achuka * "A fabulous story that really ignites the imagination." * Let them be Small * "Superbly expressive illustrations show just what the family think of their uninvited guest in this hilarious picture book." * Parents in Touch * "Should delight and thrill little ones." * Read it, Daddy! * "A thought-provoking, curious and unusual story." * Armadillo * "A strong message of sharing and acceptance of the unfamiliar with striking and imaginative illustrations" * Carousel *
