"The illustrations are just superb - each one is a miniature work of art, expressive and full of emotion. The subject matter, of loss and of rebuilding a family unit, is skilfully told and the book has an overwhelmingly positive message."
Parents in Touch
"Binch's illustrations carry the sensory appeal of life.... Figures appear caressed by the light that polishes cheekbones and limbs; sunshine crystallises the sand and glitters on the sea."
Times Educational Supplement
"The illustrations in this simply stunning book are so emotive that the accompanying words are barely needed... this heart-wrenching tale is a must-buy."
