'A nice idea; the pictures reminiscent of the sort of lovely old Polish posters that students used to pin up in memory of that year off in Krakow.' -- The Times 'The repetition and humour are ideal for reading aloud and, combined with Kate McLelland's funny, engaging illustrations, would be very popular with young children.' -- St John's Church Magazine
