“I absolutely love the flawless effortless rhythm of the text. It's simply beautiful easy reading that kids of all ages can relate to and dream about. Even without pictures we were able to perfectly conjure up the rain forest, the animals, the children, the "forest keeper." Wonderful! The visions, and that's the right word, of the book just keep going through my head.”

•  --S.T., teacher, writer and editor of best-selling non-fiction

My toughest critic, Jonah (age 8 1/2), sat enthralled and listened to every word (instead of asking as he does with me, "how long IS this thing???")

“I read the story to hyper Sally - she wanted to know if it was (again) the
rainforest story and curled right up to listen intently to the whole thing,
asking a few questions about the critters, laughing A LOT - this a miracle
from a kid who can't watch a film or TV for more than 5 minutes.

I had to promise to read it again tonight at story time. A great success.”
