Priase for Miki:

"Beautiful, dreamy and magical." (A parent 20090201)

"Soft focus pictures beautifully convey this icy world." (The Bookseller 20081201)

"...hauntingly-evoked and dreamlike worlds..."
(Bournemouth Echo 20090101)

"... a beautifully crafted and atmospheric story..."

'Miki is a beautifully crafted and atmospheric story.' (Child Education Plus 20090101)

'There is a real sense of wonder in this book, illustrated in glorious blues and greens, with characters set simply in uncluttered backgrounds for maximum impact. The pages are thick and glossy, and altogether this is a sumptuous production, which may well become a favourite with adults and young children.' (School Librarian 20090101)

Blissful. (Teach Nursery 20120201)
