'This book reminded me of the sorts of stories I read as a young child, like Percy the Park keeper and Brambly Hedge, but it didn't feel dated - just classic, cosy and comforting. It was the first in this series that I've read, but I'm definitely keen to read more of them.' Heather Fishwick
'A delight to read' The Strawberry Post
'Edith loved this book and the fact that it was made up of 3 different stories meant we got to enjoy reading the book over a few nights. It’s beautifully illustrated and was a pleasure to read and we enjoyed reading the stories and looking at the pictures together.
Edith (5) said “Mummy Mole worries a lot like me and you are like Mouse as you always tell me everything will be okay” She really understood the concept of the stories and identified with the characters, which was great. It was a lovely book to curl up with at bedtime and read together, we both throughly enjoyed this book and it has been added to the bedtime story bookshelf in Edith bedroom.' Edith & Mum, Books Up North
'Every story is a delight to read, so fun to enjoy and I’m sure many children, and adults, will adore these tales!' Strawberry Post
