Alison Brumwell, BookTrust Storytime Prize judge;' Kitamura's inimitable illustrations are as appealing as ever, but pared down for the younger audience, with bright and bold shapes on a white background. A masterfully crafted story for tots, impeccable in its apparent simplicity, yet with all the elements of tension, resolution and surprise needed in a good story. Perfection!'
