“Fleur Hitchcock has cornered the market in hard-boilers for beginners … There is much to like about this pacey story. Lottie is a bright and ballsy character and Sophia a suitably kooky sidekick.”
— The Times Children’s Book of the Week
“Simon Puttock’s Mouse’s First Night at Moonlight School takes a reassuring look at feeling shy on the first day in the classroom … Ali Pye’s dreamy illustrations are as appealing as the child-head teacher Miss Moon, who sports a witch’s hat but is otherwise a model of affectionate understanding.”
— The Independent
Open Very Carefully, illustrated by Nicola O’Byrne with words by Nick Bromley, has won in the picture book category of the 2014 Waterstones Children’s Book Prize!
“A just recognition of one of our most dynamic new publishers.”
— The Telegraph
“Dolan’s illustrations are a dippy delight and the jokes in the many speech bubbles funny enough to stand the test of many readings. A classic in the cracking.”
— The Times

— The Times

“Little Red Riding Hood is rather marvellous: a children’s book-app that impresses with its technical chops, but more importantly with its firm focus on storytelling and reading skills”
— The Guardian
“O’Byrne’s crocodile is a personable antihero—she underscores his disruptive nature by drawing him in a brash, aggressive style that contrasts mischievously with her soft, storybook duckling—and her integration of typography and action is consistently ingenious.”
