Reviews

‘The satisfaction of reading about a young boy who succeeds against the odds, and who gets to cook the most delicious-sounding food in golden jewel-encrusted pots, will ensure many fans for this light-hearted picture book.’
– BOOKSELLER + PUBLISHER, April 2010

‘An absolutely delightful picture book for little folk. The text is just about perfect; so well measured for reading aloud and setting just the right tone for such a happy playful little tale. It is superbly matched in spirit by the iillustration.’
– Magpies: Talking about books for children, Volume 25
