    Comments about Mr. McGee:

    This (along with 'Mr McGee Goes to Sea' and 'Mr Mcgee and the Blackberry jam books in this series) iare truly remarkable children's books, that hold their own with the best of Sendak, Ungerer, or anyone else. The simplicity and perfection with which the words and pictures are blended belies their depth and beauty. The brief strories are compelling and humorous ; true art that conceals the difficulty of its creation A must for reading to 0 to 7 year olds every night, to develop them into literate people.

            This is a great book that all kids will love. It is a great picture book for reading aloud as it has nice rhyming text that follows Mr Mcgee, who happens to live under a tree, for the day. The illustrations are a wonderful compliment to the text and makes this book a winner. It is a family favourite in my house. We read this book most nights before bed.

            Pamela Allen

            Pamela Allen is a phenomenon in the world of children's literature. For almost thirty years her picture books have enchanted generations of children in Australia and overseas and many of her titles have won prestigious awards and commendations. She has earned classic status through the enduring popularity of her stories with the very young.

            Pamela's books are full of the music of language; they are 'fragments of theatre', designed to be read aloud and shared between an adult and a child. Eight of Pamela's titles were adapted for the stage by Patch Theatre Company, an Grandpa and Thomas won the Children's Book Council Book of the Year Award: Early Childhood and The Potato People was named an Honour Book in the same category in 2003, and Grandpa and Thomas and the Green Umbrella was shortlisted for the same award in 2007, as was Shhh! Little Mouse in 2008. Is Your Grandmother a Goanna? won a 2008 Speech Pathology of Australia Book of the Year Award, as did Our Daft Dog Danny in 2010.
