We currently have a copy from the library but Master always says before we read it 'I will get a copy of this for my birthday if I'm lucky, won't I MUM!!!' - What an easy birthday present

I love this book just as much as I love seeing my 2year old run away from me at bath time to do a nudie run! She would love this book for me to read to her at night when we have cuddles and kisses.

love this book and would love one to read to my grandson whom I mind. He loves books.


loved this book since I first saw it several years ago. It is as if it was written about my grandchildren. So true.
