Thank you to Vivian Kirkfield at Picture Books Help Kids Soar for her review of The Peddler's Bed.
Here is an excerpt:
What a lovely message of kindness and caring wrapped up in a story reminiscent of an old folk tale! The illustrations are bold, the characters are unexpected. Kids will enjoy the ‘squeak, squeak, squeak’ that all the objects make – the cart, the door, the kettle over the fire. I loved it!

We hope your 2015 is filled with great reads!
