"The tenderness shown by Foreman to his subject strengthens the message for all parents to share the garden and play and give their children the chance to experience Stevenson’s recapturing of a transient sense of wonder and enchanting pleasure."
"Foreman is the perfect illustrator for the poems, his watercolours imbuing them with a sense of timelessness and innocence. One for the family bookshelf."
