“A great activity book for those who like to get their hands mucky”

“This book is AMAZING! I have to admit I was sceptical about the ink pads, thinking they would be poor quality, messy and dry up easily. I was wrong! The colours are bright and vibrant and they don't smear when pressed on the book and there is enough ink when pressed to make the imprint you want in the book”
“Look no further for a rainy-day Easter holiday activity... Gorgeous.”
“A simple idea but well executed to make a lovely creative activity.”
“The colours are bright and engaging and there’s plenty of scope for imaginative designs.”
