'innovative - you will not have seen anything like it. Quirky, but undeniably cute.' Graham Marks, The Children's Bookseller, March 2009 'a joyous book ... children will love being taken into the magical minute world of insect infested textiles. The characters are beautifully expressive and fun. You read it with a smile on your face ... The message of the book is a tale of the celebration of difference, tolerance and acceptance with the advantages and excitement that being in a varied society can bring.' Becky Brown, Association of Illustrators online, 21 July 2009
