"Mayhew's flowing, vivid mixed-media illustrations give the book a warm texture all its own...a beautiful and necessary parable for our time."-Kirkus Reviews on Mrs Noah's Pockets

"[Mrs Noah] never wavers in her moral resolve, and her cleverness and compassion shine in this sly secular reimagining." - Publishers Weekly starred review on Mrs Noah's Pockets

"Marrying Jackie Morris's words with James Mayhew's richly textured illustrations, this book is fabulous in all particulars, from its duped patriarch believing that his wife is sewing curtains rather than secret pockets for centaurs, to it endpapers, full of wild waters and gambolling fantastic beasts." - The Guardian on Mrs Noah's Pockets

"An alternative approach to the story of Noah in which Mrs Noah is foregrounded and magical beasts survived the flood. Mayhew's colourful, naive images using collage show the celebratory garden she makes, filling it with love for her family." - The Sunday Times on Mrs Noah's Garden

"Picture-book lovers will delight in the gentle, transformative hopefulness of Mrs Noah's Garden." - Times Literary Supplement on Mrs Noah's Garden
A sweet story of family, perfect for bedtime -- Booklist
