Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week

Ferocious Wild Beasts by Chris Wormell


...Impressively skilful in the way its pictures make the creatures realistic as animals, yet human in their attitudes and expressions, this tale is both delightful and suspenseful and has a punch line that will encourage children not so much to disobey their mothers as to respond without prejudice to the people and creatures they meet. NICOLETTE JONES

When I read this recently to a group of 5/6 yr olds one boy dragged his mother in afterwards and and insisted on showing her every single page. It's that kind of picture book. Really first-rate.
