This is lovely story of a child’s vivid imagination, which was read to a group of year 2 children who absolutely loved the story and the illustrations which brought the story to life.

Read this at a spur of the moment while waiting for something. Just because I'm a kid at heart and being 23 will not change the fact that I will never ever stop loving Jackie Wilson's books and Nick Sharatt's illustrations.
