Great graphics and a good book for children to notice on the shelf.  Superb quality and excellent use of words and pictures.  My daughter loves to read and was in awe of the beastie. She absolutely loved the book and the way that it was written. It is poetry form and she soon learnt the words. She is coming up to 4 years old and
started to recognise words in the poem.  She loved the illustrations and soon started to look deeper into the pictures to look at the details within in.  My eldest thoroughly enjoyed having it read to her and it is now a firm favourite in her bedtime reading list.  I cannot fault the story for my child as she quite enjoys seeing the progression of the characters. I would like to warn other parents though as there are some gruesome parts in it so possibly only for children that aren’t easily scared.  Stimulating for my eldest in terms of the storyline.  My youngest engaged with the flow of the story and even started reacting to the words as the reader is compelled to really get into the story. A quality book with a very good use of poetry.  The book isn’t very long but the illustrations and poetry form does make it a worthwhile purchase.  I would purchase this book and if there was a sequel, I would certainly purchase it for my children. Yes I would recommend and I already have done. My daughter was talking about it at pre-school so then I also introduced the book to other parents. Absolutely perfect for my children as they engaged with the melodic form of the story and the illustrations.   I loved that the book was immediately taken to by my children and that it has become a favourite story. My eldest soon learnt the words by heart which now allows me to go through and teach her to recognise the certain words.  Emily Shepperson – Alyssa & Harvey Aged 3 & 1

Brilliant good cover very inviting.  Very y good quality a lovely book to read.  She was very excited to go ahead and read the front cover was very inviting .  Good illustrations went well with the text made the story come alive.  She has read the book over and over again to herself it’s now a favourite at bedtime.  She loved the plot and talked excitedly about the storyline.  Yes this is a stimulating book for Ashlynne, along with the pictures it made the story fun yet you still have to use your imagination.  Excellent think it’s a wonderful booked and well written for children.  Yes I would happily pay full price for this it is definitely worth the money.  Now that we have read this book would definitely purchase the sequel.  A fun story to read with the family.  Fantastic book I thoroughly enjoyed reading with my daughter and she thoroughly enjoyed reading it to her younger brother it’s a great book for all ages and for adults!!  Emma George – Ashlynne Aged 5 Years

Great illustration on cover very bright, looked a bit scary.  Great colours and illustrations and good quality paper.  He thought it looked scary!!  Loved the big pictures, so was interested.  The illustrations were excellent, large, colourful and quirky.  He did enjoy reading the book, but he does have a very very very vivid imagination and was spooked, but enjoyed being spooked!!! The rhyming of the story really helped and was excellent!  The story is Fantastic.  A very stimulating book,  lets the imagination run wild, the pictures was stimulating and the way the story is told in rhyme helped.  Great fun, quirky story, catchy rhymes, super colourful pictures. Certainly good value for money, a good fun read, very imaginative in a simple way for children to understand.  We would absolutely buy the sequel; we would love to know what else Gran gets up to!  Would certainly recommend as a fun book and a great story.  Quirky story, beautiful pictures, great story telling with rhyme.  Caroline Coello – Jacob 5 years
