“a bottomless pit of excitement”

**** The Stage


"a wonderful way to introduce children who have not seen a stage production before to the theatre, but it is also a brilliant show for children who are regular theatre-goers."

***** Theatre Bubble

“beautiful puppetry, bombastic performances and a jolly good time”
