“Jo, you are wonderful how you take the voice of the children and make it into a fabulous story. My year two students devour their Stanley book and it is looking well loved. I can’t wait to read to them this new book” Ally Powell, Teacher , Auckland.

“I must say the illustrations are fantastic. You clearly have a great relationship with the illustrator and he certainly portrays the characters. It was a great story to read and gives some incredibly important messages to kids at School.” Kinda Kittelty

“My boys really enjoyed listening to the story and looking at the fun illustrations. They had a race to see who could find the mouse on every page and especially loved the look of Aunty Violet! We had some discussions about how to cope with bullies in their lives. This will be a helpful book we can refer back to. ” Renee
