  • One More Try is a beautifully simple exploration of the art of never giving up and the benefits of a fresh perspective. - Joseph Coelho, Waterstones Children's Laureate 2022-2024
  • My 5 year old and I loved it! Sweet, clever, and engaging. - Harriet Muncaster, Author and Illustrator of the Isadora Moon series
  • A lovely (and very clever!) story about problem-solving, perseverance, and the magic of a gentle switch in perspective. - Rashmi Sirdeshpande, Author
  • A delightfully playful book on problem-solving, perseverance and team work which will encourage young readers to think outside the box. - Steve Antony, Author and Illustrator
  • This book is simply wonderful. It's a superb introduction to two-dimensional shapes and their properties as well as being colourful and fun. The illustrations are adorable (the cute faces of the shapes - oh my!) and the pages are vibrant and full of activity and colour... A story of determination and resilience at its heart, with mathematics at its core (and your child doesn't even realise it - win, win!), this book is a true triumph. - Mini Travellers Blog
  • A beautiful and engaging story about a friendship group of shapes who never give up in their quest for succeeding with what they want to achieve. It's a fabulous tale of perseverance and team-work, and of having endless possibilities. A wonderful picture book that is gorgeously illustrated and has a heart-warming and uplifting storyline. Highly recommended. - Tom (Bookseller) at Waterstones Chippenham
