Four great reviews for four great books!

Long time Maverick reviewer Denyse King has reviewed our latest picture books on her website.


A Gold Star For George (5 stars on Amazon)

“This book is quirky and whimsical with an underlying theme of the importance of kindness and friendship. The illustrations are bright and concise and they help to pick out the key messages in this story.”

A Box of Socks WEB


A Box of Socks (4 stars on Amazon)

“This book is about helping your family and friends, and about the special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren. Lilly and I had fun choosing which socks we liked best out of all the ones Granny knitted and Lilly thought the idea of “squishy cushions for squashy bottoms” was particularly hilarious.”

Pirates Don't Drive Diggers COVER LR RGB JPEG

Pirates Don’t Drive Diggers (5 stars on Amazon)

“This book has splendid rhymes which dance off your tongue and keep trying to turn themselves into songs. As well as all the fun that offers there is also a map with lines for little fingers to follow, and creatures lurking in the depths of the illustrations just waiting to be spotted triumphantly by young readers. This is definitely one we will be reading over and over.”

Horace and Hattiepillar (4 stars on Amazon)

“This is a lovely way to introduce children to the concept of caterpillar metamorphosis. The last seven pages are spectacular to look at and the story is very sweet.”

Thank you for the wonderful reviews Denyse, we hope these books become permanent favourites on your bookshelf!
