Review:

‘A wonderful book! This is a great way to help children with dyslexia who find reading difficult to understand and be kind to themselves. This book will also be useful (and entertaining) for members of their families to help them understand, and their classmates too.' - Margaret Rooke, Author of Creative, Successful, Dyslexic, and Dyslexia is My Superpower (most of the time)

'Thank you, on behalf of all the Harrys and Harriettes who struggle in silence with reading. This gentle, empowering book will be their lifeline.' - Antony Lishak, Author and creative writing expert

'As the head teacher of a school with many pupils on the dyslexic spectrum I was delighted to see this book. Firstly it's an entertaining and interesting read and children will enjoy sharing it with their friends and families. It also provides an accessible platform for positive discussion around the needs of pupils with a dyslexic profile to children, parents and professionals.' - Mylene McGuire, Head Teacher, St. Mary’s RC Primary School, Manchester

'This book is fun, very accessible and engaging and I am sure it will give many dyslexic children more confidence.' - Baroness Hollins, House of Lords, UK
