"An exuberant celebration of individuality and the importance of being yourself."
Fiona Noble - The Bookseller
"Altogether a bravura performance by mother and daughter. One gets the impression that both Joyce and Polly Dunbar had an equally terrific time creating this gloriously dotty, thoroughly upbeat celebration of being yourself- au naturel - so to speak. Joyce’s - or should that be Plunkett’s narrative - is pure pleasure to read aloud."
Red Reading Hub
"Whether you are five or fifty you are sure to enjoy reading this exhilarating and amusing story together."
