G.E.M. Reviews

"I particularly like the fashion style of Dad's yellow boots, and the picture of the children whizzing around Saturn's rings as a birthday party game" -- Alison Boyle Nursery World "Reminiscent of those cute Sixties cartoons set in space, full of suburban families and high-tech gadgets" -- Georgia Metcalfe Daily Mail "G.E.M. has real personality and 'hands on hips' attitude" -- Rosemary Hetherington Inis "The best book on jealousy we've come across" My Child
