Review:

"Great fun... nicely illustrated and with a great story for kids. They'll love the fact that it's about a woman who creates knickers for Queen Victoria, but they (and you) may also find it genuinely interesting that the monarch made wearing underpants popular. For this and more (including a great lift the flap on the final page), check out the book." The Times Online"A guaranteed hit with children..." Parents in Touch"A rollicking royal tale!" Irish WorldPraise for The Diary of a Wombat:"French and Whatley have conjured an affectionate, believable wombat self-portrait." New York Times Book Review"Bruce Whatley's illustrations bring the story to life in a way that is both endearing and amusing. It's easy to see why this book has won several awards in Jackie French's native Australia. It deserves to be a huge hit here too, as it feels really fresh and original." Publishing News
