And there are machines, maps and even a laboratory . . . oh, and lots and lots of weasels.

What the Critics Said

“Dolan’s hysterical picture book follows the weasels at work on the day they plan to seize global power – but unexpected obstacles keep thwarting their efforts, from faulty machinery to over-zealous health and safety inspectors […] Every page is a treasure trove of hilarity and it will take several reads to pick up on all the clever little details which Dolan has scattered about the place. It’s also fun to follow the progress of individual weasels as the story unfolds – keep an eye out for the one with the huge drill, who happens to be my personal favourite.”

“Sometimes – not often enough – you come across a book that’s fun from start to finish and which you could enjoy at almost any age. Weasels by Elys Dolan is just such a picture book, and tells both of their plans for world domination and how they are hilariously thwarted. I heartily recommend it.”

A wonderfully humorous debut from an exciting new picture book talent.”

– Booktrust

“Uproarious antics unfold in frisky cartoon spreads as not-so-smart minions, mad scientists, and a monocled mastermind scurry for a solution.”

School Library Journal

“Amid sight gags, crossed wires and way too many espresso drinks, these weasels rule!”
