Not only is this a clever book in regards to concept, it takes a very difficult, frustrating situation (a misbehaving creature) and teaches children how love, inclusiveness, warm attention and redirection can totally transform the wayward to the wonderful. Its messaging is subtle and beautifully done.
Tania McCartney, Kids' Book Review
The rhyme, rhythm and wickedly clever wordplay make reading aloud fun: "Oodles of mud on the edge of a puddle, we mix it up and call it a muddle." This book is a celebration of the glorious messiness of creativity. Add this book to Santa's list now. For ages 2 to 6.
Sandy Fussell, Sunday Telegraph, Sydney
The easy flowing rhyme is catchy and great for kids of all ages, and the lively and fun illustrations are relatable for young ones who love to scribble and doodle themselves!
