“Express Delivery from Dinosaur World is a beautifully designed book, with meticulous attention to detail in both the illustrations and the fold-outs, lift-the-flaps and acetate sheets; all of which combine to make this a masterful book.”
“A magical heart-warming tale with charming expressive watercolour-and–coloured-pencil artwork that really captures the atmosphere of the wintery Beijing streets.”
“… it’s the brash expressive gouache paintings, with their unusual palette of blue, brown and orange, that provide the vibrant colour and comical expressions that carry this humorous and appealing story about the importance of friendship.”
“Picking Turnips is a refreshing twist on a traditional tale that is sure to capture children’s imagination.”
