I really enjoyed this book! Any book with rhyming is a winner for me, so song like! The story is a nice every day life experience, not some far-fetched fantasy, and the illustrations are so Kiwiana!

Thanks for sending a first read copy!

This is a fantastic book - wonderful illustrations and a beautifully written, quirky story. My children love it too. It is great to see a New Zealand book, about New Zealand people going about their day, all packaged up as such an enjoyable read. Superb.

Beautifully illustrated in an easy style. The kids were instantly drawn to the pictures. So much for them to see on each page. The text flows smoothly and has a distinct kiwi flavour. A great story about everyday people and the jobs they do.
