  • ‘Great excitement lies at the heart of these pacy adventures’

  • ‘There’s definitely enough here to provide for high drama – the transformation, the monsters, the perils of being small in a huge world, but there’s more here than meets the eye. . . I can trust that this series will have some great surprises to come.’

  • ‘This book has helped my son, 5, move on from picture books at bed time to one with more words. An excellent choice for reluctant readers who will be thrilled at the idea of turning into a bug, mad inventors and lots of adventures.’

    Amazon reviewer

  • ‘The book is great fun and involves the reader, who really feels as though they are part of the story. Along the way the reader learns a surprising amount about pond life.’
