The Lovereading comment

Winner of the Greenaway of Greenaways in 2007 and Greenaway winner in 1977.

Filled with humour and Shirley Hughes' deft touch, this is a book for young readers to tackle by themselves, as well as a delight to read aloud.  It’s moving and inspirational on how to cope with a problem situation.  A classic for every bookshelf and it will strike a chord with adults and children everywhere. (4-7)

Synopsis
