Press reviews

“Equally lavishly illustrated, these retellings of classics such as The Railway Children, The Wizard of Oz, The Secret Garden, The Wind in the Willows and The Story of Heidi are wonderful: straightforward and plain but faithful to the originals. They will help introduce another generation of children to some of humanity’s most enduring tales. If you haven’t already, buy one for your children or someone else’s this Christmas.”
