Reviews from Toppsta 

“This is part of the ‘Ten Little….’ series. It starts with 10 characters and on each page something happens to one so there is one less. It’s a sweet book and the illustrations are nice. My girl liked spotting out the characters she recognised from other stories.” – Read to two children aged 7 and 5

“We are big fans of the ‘Ten Little Dinosaurs’ book so were keen to read this one too. It’s quite sweet how rather than one theme, like the dinosaur book, this one takes a theme per page. I like that it helps little ones with counting downwards and them joining in with the rhymes and especially that it’s all ends up with a happy ending.” – Read to a child aged 4

“The ’10 Little’ series are a big hit with my daughter. This one has lots of characters that children will recognise, like the Big Bad Wolf and Cinderella. It has lovely, bright illustrations with lots of details to talk about, and the rhyming text was fun to read.” – Read to a child aged 2

“This is an amazing book, which brings many story time favourites together in one fun tale. The pictures are very immersive and colourful making you feel like you are part of the action. The story shows you just how much fun you can have when you open a book or ten and we really enjoyed reading it.” – Read to two children aged 5 and 8

“A great little introduction to this fun series of picture books!  Excellent value with a full story albeit in a mini package which your small people will love. As well as an enjoyable counting story, this is a great introduction for children exploring all the different things that they can experience in books – two thumbs way, way up!” – Read to a Library Group, with children aged 7 to 12
