Parents in Touch review I Will Not Wear Pink

July 15, 2016

"Plunkett has been invited to a party by Priscilla - but he must wear pink. Never, he says. Riotous rhyming text sees Plunkett in all sorts of pink... and finally he discovers that there is one shade of pink that is just perfect. Happily, Priscilla agrees with Plunkett and the two pigs fly happily away... all in pink! Just be yourself, and all will be perfect, is the theme of this entertaining story."

"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."

Read it Daddy reviews Run, Elephant, Run!

"This has to be one of the most beautiful books we've seen this year... "

Red Reading Hub reviews Run, Elephant, Run!

"With its wealth of onomatopoeia this is a great book for adding sound effects during a story session. Children could use their voices, found objects or musical instruments – possibly ones they’ve made themselves – to orchestrate the reading… First though, read the story, look closely at the superb visuals and then, using the final puzzle spread, go back through the book and search for the thirty odd rainforest creatures in the richly coloured illustrations. "

Achuka reviews Run, Elephant, Run!

An Indonesian rainforest adventure, with 35 creatures to find amongst the lavishly illustrated glossy pages. .   

Let Them Be Small features Run, Elephant, Run!

The perfect introduction to the amazing rainforest and the need to protect. The illustrations are superb and the use of light and dark are wonderful – causing the children to reach and out and touch the pages.
