"An inviting, relevant, and timely message of tolerance, inclusiveness, unity, and peace.

It's certainly as relevant as when it was written over 45 years ago: indeed, we desperately need it now even more than ever.' * Red Reading Hub * "effective and very poignant" * The Bookseller * 'A lovely picture book' * Angels & Urchins * Children's Book of the Week: 'lovely to read to your child during these troubled times.' * The Sun * '[the] message is as relevant to society today as it was when it was released' * Design Boom *
