Reviews for The Terribly Friendly Fox
“A darkly hilarious tale with Roald Dahl humour.”
South Wales Evening Post
"Darkly humorous...cleverly written...and ingeniously illustrated"
Kids Story World
“The Tiger Who comes to Tea meets Roald Dahl”
"A fab story with a wicked sense of fun. The gorgeous illustrations cleverly show how raucous the party is, whilst also subtly hinting that Gerald may not be quite what he seems! … It feels like a book she will come back to time and time again.”
"The best part for me was the subtle, yet funny, story which happened in the background of the book. As we watch Gerald and the party host enjoy the festivities there is something amiss!
This is a funny, clever story which any reader would enjoy!"
"The Terribly Friendly Fox is a delightfully dark tale which is sure to make you laugh!"
My Book Corner
"The Terribly Friendly Fox is an exceptional story that will teach your children to pay close attention to the details ...They'll soon realise that everything is not quite as it seems."
