Reviews

'What a wonderful collection of books, all in mini sizes but still beautifully designed and detailed... The stories are wonderful evocations of a more innocent childhood, but it is the illustrations that give it the wow factor. I can imagine children spending a great deal of time simply admiring the pictures. The are from another time and place, in a good way.'
-- EYE (Early Years Educator)
