    1. The Source

      Joy Cowley is a genius with words, and this anthology is a reminder of her skill and originality.The exuberant colour illustrations are by Giselle Clarkson. According to Joy Cowley, these pictures are ‘mad and scrumptious’.

    2. Magpies Magazine (AUS)

      Cowley’s text is pitch perfect as always, a master of rhythm and rhyme and the ability to take small everyday moments and make them special…Giselle has a style all her own and has maximised her capacity for loose lines and scribbly colouring… allowing the textures to bring more touches of impulse and life to each character.
