  1. Isabel

    Lovely stories and illustrations . All my grandchildren loved the stories and became interested in the characters. A book I know will be reread many times.

  2. Rosalind Wherly

    A thought provoking book for children and adults to read together. The
    essences of the stories are all true with a ‘touch of magic’ in each one.
    I think these stories would go down well in infant and junior schools with much discussion about each story. A lovely read.

  3. Wen Elliott

    A lovely book to read and discuss with children.
    My 6 year old grandson was completely engrossed whilst I read to him which is very hard to achieve, he is a very lively little chap!
    My 11 year old grandson also listened in for a while and said he would like to read the rest of the stories himself. Great achievement too as he loves his electronics and rarely asks for books!

  4. Elaine Crowther

    A very well written children’s book with both magic and reality mixed together to keep the readers engaged what ever their age. The stories are just the right length. Infant and junior schools would benefit from these stories as they are both educational and magical. A lovely book to read.

  5. Pauline Dixon (verified owner)

    Lovely stories to read to my youngest grandchildren who are six and four. I also enjoyed reading them and they were well illustrated.

  6. Sally Speakman

    A lovely book that would be enjoyed by a variety of ages. When read with younger children it opened up thought provoking discussions. Older children appreciate reading it independently. The book is truly magical with lovely characters.

  7. Sally Speakman

    This book is perfect for a variety of primary aged children. When read to young children it provoked thoughtful discussions. It can be enjoyed by older children who can read independently. It truly is magical with lovely characters.

  8. Lynda Ginger

    A great book which deals with some issues in a sensitive and light hearted way. The stories are well written and illustrated. Both my grandsons loved the stories and keep asking if there will be more for them to read soon.
