  1. This book has delighted my four-year-old and two-year-old grandchildren. They requested an immediate re-read when it was first read, and were delighted with all the small details they could pick out in the lively and colourful illustrations. The idea of the fantastic creatures themselves recounting their tales to the teller of stories really appealed to them, and gave me a chance to tell them some of the wonderful myths associated with the various characters. The endearing Froggicorn keeps the story firmly anchored in a modern reality – and introduces a charming new addition to the world of myth.

  2. My girls received their copy of this lovely ‘Froggicorn’ book a couple of days ago. They absolutely loved the story and thought the illustrations by Katy Jones were ‘awesome’ especially the dragon and unicorn – they really are stunning. They loved spotting things like little caterpillars in the borders – so much detail. My eldest is so excited to take the book into school next week so the teacher can read it to her class. Highly recommend this fab book 🙂 ❤️
