“Harry Harrison’s witty and exquisitely detailed illustrations teamed with Sarah Brennan’s engaging verse make for another wonderfully giggly read. We loved it!” Clare Morin, Time Out Hong Kong
“We can all learn a lot from Oswald, who keeps his cool when everyone around him panics. Another instant classic from the Brennan/Harrison team – infectious rhyme that demands to be read aloud, wry illustrations and a happy ending.” Elizabeth McNeilly, The Parents’ Journal
