'TO CALL THIS SHOW LIVELY WOULD BE A WHOPPING UNDERSTATEMENT. Packed with gleeful songs and jolly good fun.' The Guardian

'Stitches together Julia Donaldson and Axel Schefflers beloved adventures with wit, innovation and endearing silliness. Childrens shows make me smile, this one made me continually grin. A childrens treat that adults too can guiltlessly enjoy. It may only be a tiddler, but this show has a big heart and is brimming with inventiveness.' A Younger Theatre

'An hour-long feast of storytelling that thrills children and parents alike. A masterpiece.' * * * * *  Broadway Baby

'Mesmerising' * * * * FEST

'Julia Donaldson and Axel Schefflers tales are lovingly brought to life. A perfect childrens show' * * * *  The British Theatre Guide
