Tree Soup: A Stanley Wells Mystery Reviews


This is a fast-moving story which made me laugh. It also has good illustrations by the author * Independent *
A most attractively produced book. The illustrations wander over the page and assist the reader to progress with increasing confidence through the book * Carousel *
An ingenious mystery involving tins of soup - or are they? . . . This quirky story is beautifully illustrated and will appeal to children of seven and above * Daily Telegraph *
Beautifully atmospheric, the trees whispering and waving in the golden and green light, with lively, eccentric illustrations of a cheeky-looking, rotund Stanley and the bizarre Dr Moon, this has the feel of a classic children's tale, whilst having its own ebullient originality * Literary Review *
Stanley's adventures are thoroughly absorbing and enjoyable, and the sympathetic illustrations will encourage slightly less confident readers * The School Librarian *
