'This is a fun read that easily grabs the attention. The text is full of things that children specifically love - spaceships, tomato ketchup, torches in bed and the rest. Of course, a reader the calibre of Andrew Sachs does the story full justice on the accompanying CD, making it a magical duo indeed!' www.FromBumptoGrump.co.uk
