“Julia Donaldson always works with the most exceptional illustrators and in Spinderella she has continued by finding another fantastic partner in Sebastien Braun. His illustrations stand out of the page and there is so much for children to look at.” — The Bookbag for ‘Spinderella’ by Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Sebastien Braun.
“A gorgeously warm-hearted celebration of paternal affection that quietly delivers a message about love and companionship being more important than material gifts. Braun’s illustrations are packed with humorous details and heart melting moments.” — The Red Reading Hub
“Allan Ahlberg’s latest book, Kicking a Ball, is an uncomplicated tribute to the joy of playing football. I found myself nodding in hearty agreement at the book’s sentiment as I raced through it: ‘Kicking a ball, kicking a ball, that’s surely the purpose of life, after all.’ — ‘Yes, indeed. Couldn’t agree more,’ I thought – and then discovered that the book was written for two- to five-year-olds.
The book is beautifully illustrated by Sebastien Braun, whose rough-around-the-edges style compliments Ahlberg’s wholesome rhymes.” — Rupert Hawksley for The Telegraph on ‘Kicking a Ball’ by Allan Ahlberg, illustrated by Sebastien Braun.
