I’m all for anything that opens up the imagination and encourages creativity in young children. With the current tick box mentality that is all too prevalent in schools today, I see fewer and fewer opportunities being given in the classroom and even in nurseries for children to follow their own imaginative ideas. All power to Doodle Girl and her flights of fancy…

– Red Reading Hub

This is really imaginative and I would love to see this become the first of a series.

– Parents in Touch

The creators of this stylish Picturebook take a simple idea and turn it into an appealing adventure, and one that should also encourage children to get out their pencils and crayons and start drawing themselves.
