Editorial Reviews

 Each page of brilliant art has a little bit of texture, so that toddlers can feel the pictures as well as look at them. It’s a beautiful little book for the very youngest of little ones.

“... Hello Humpback! serves as an introduction to an area, a culture and an art style, and its contents can likely be appreciated by an audience older than that normally associated with a board book. Highly Recommended.” ~ Dave Jenkinson, CM (Volume XXIV, No. 22)
