Rendered in sombre hues with a gradual fading out of the soft orange as the sun finally sinks, this is desert dryness in more senses than one. Red Reading Hub This sparsely worded and drawn picture book captures brilliantly the concept of sharing and is cleverly conceived, a wonderful conclusion to a fantastic series and a highly recommended addition to any bookshelf!
