Reviews

One Snowy Night A lovely book to share at bedtime 'Children's Book News' A heartwarming tale 'Susan Hill, The Independent' After the Storm ...look no further for the best present for any child from two to six 'Susan Hill, The Sunday Times' The Rescue Party It's good for reading aloud to under-fives, and later the six-pluses will still want to read it themselves 'The Independent on Sunday'
