9/25/2008 celia Leary said: One of my favourite of Davids books. The story is a favourite of my daughter who quoted it at me each meal time for weeks after reading. Stunningly illustrated - the shift in colours from the beginning to end reflects the change in circumstances for the characters beautifully.
