Parents in Touch 20120831 "I cannot tell you how much I ADORE these two books [JUST IMAGINE and YOU CHOOSE]. I think they are brilliant - they encourage children to interact with both the visual and the written word, they encourage them to be creative and use their natural resources and they enable stories to be created and worlds to be made." Book Reviews for Mums 20120909 "I liked it a lot. The main thing I liked about it is that it really gets your imagination going. There are some really funny bits and some strange bits and all sorts of different bits. Also it had quite a nice ending to it. And also instead of telling you "it should be like this" or "it happens like that" you choose for yourself. It could be for quite young people and would be good for kids who've just learning to read - it is mainly pictures - but it's still quite nice for older people like me." -- Daisy (8 Years Old) An Awfully Big Blog Adventure 20120824 "Let your child's imagination soar with this inspirational book! ...The illustrations by Nick Sharratt are full of intricate detail which offers another level for the imagination to explore. An exciting concept with boundless applications. Try using it as an inspiration for creative writing - it would work brilliantly in the classroom for this. Totally fascinating." parentsintouch.co.uk
