Reviews
"This tongue-in-cheek tale takes a typical love story and sets it squarely-and amusingly-on end. Ross's vibrantly hued pen-and-ink and watercolor cartoons depict the edge of a pond where a caterpillar and a tadpole meet and fall in love. . . . Willis strikes the perfect balance between the deadpan telling and the humorously overblown dialogue shared by the star-crossed pair, while the artwork masterfully enhances each and every nuance. Enjoy this funny story on its own merits or try using it to lighten up a science lesson." --School Library Journal starred review
"Breaks the mould in form as well as content." --Sunday Times
"In poetic, carefully crafted prose Jean Willis tells an ironic, tragic tale of blighted young love." - Linda Pagett - Writeaway.co.uk
