Book Reviews:

"I just wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful book written by your friend that you sent for Freddy. What a lovely book it is - I read it to him yesterday. He is a bit young at the moment to appreciate the story but he loved staring at the pictures. I thought the story was fantastic!"
Anne, Freddy's mum

"Congratulations! Your book is wonderful- a great story and beautifully illustrated. Susan brought it over last week and read it to my two older grandsons- David who is 6 and Benjamin who is 3.5. They both loved it- and after Susan had finished reading them the story- David then read the story to Susan. What fun we all had! The next morning when Benjamin came over, he asked me to read it to him again. Well- that's the best review- he loves it."
Mary Ann, Grandma
