What the critics say

Full colour, action and comedy, this exciting story invites children to anticipate events and join in with repetitions.
- Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times Year's Best Children's Books

A fun and exciting good news/bad news book in its own right
- The Bookbag

The perfect fusing of words and pictures will captivate and lead a young reader through this wonderful drama.
- Carousel Magazine

A riveting and cleverly constructed tale. Foreman's distinctive illustrations invite the reader's exploration and tell as much or more of the story as do the words.
- Books for Keeps

A great story to share with children and then share again.
- Armadillo Magazine

Voted by the Evening Standard as one of the best Christmas books for younger children.
- Evening Standard

Another exuberant book from the multi-talented Michael Foreman.
- The School Librarian

A very clever, creative funny and beautifully illustrated book.

A young chimp's adventuresome delivery of an umbrella to his grandma's house . . . all depicted with luminous watercolours in big, comical scenes.
- Kirkus Magazine

Michael Foreman effortlessly blends the everyday and surreal on each page - and the clever storytelling technique is begging to be imitated in class.
- Teach Primary

Vibrantly illustrated, you just wonder what weird scrape he can possibly get into on the next page! Great fun.
- Parents In Touch
