IBBY review Immi

This heart-warming tale is therefore one that is likely to make an impact, one that is also helped by the stunning use of colours that make every spread a sheer visual delight for readers. Overall, an unusual story that explores friendship and gifts – highly suitable for one to five year-olds – with the quality and ideas to be enjoyed over many readings.
