The Platinum Award is the highest accolade possible and is reserved for those products that go above and beyond the high judging standards and showcase immaculate design.
Style Me Sunday - "Finally a book that reflects not only my family, but the wonderfully colourful diversity of the world we live in. There is a really lovely mix of reality and fantasy in these books. The characters and story line are exciting and interesting to both kids and parents, and the length of the book (really important) is just about perfect, you can tell the author is a dad himself. I can imagine that he wrote exactly the kind of books he always wanted to read to his kids."
Anna Whitehouse, Mother Pukka - “What's not to love? There's a magical scooter and a proper storyline; I was as enthralled as my daughter. This is essential bedtime reading that won't have parents trying to skip pages. Nice work Mark. Bring on the next.”
