Industry Reviews

'This is the kind of book that young children can pore and ponder over; the illustrations are simple but vibrant, complementing the text but leaving plenty of detail to ensure the reader will linger over each spread.' Four Stars, Australian Bookseller & Publisher

' . . . this picture book is a little gem as the rat imagines the difference his stripy sock will make. The illustrations perfectly capture the emotion of the book. the rat's facial expressions are priceless and he is so cute. The text is 'heart-lifting,' to quote a word from the book. It's a book to make you smile and maybe it's also saying something a lot of us need to hear about what is important in life. 'This gentle book is sure to become a favourite with children and their parents. It would make a good story for before bedtime as it's not only short but leaves positive images in the mind. Especially great for 0-3 years but will be enjoyed by those older as well.' Good Reading

This is a very entertaining book for young readers.


I work in a school library area with Primary school readers, we like to provide our young readers a good choice of books.
