'Toot might be a tiddler of a whale but he proves he has a big heart in this heartwarming rhyming story of his quest to find the sea... Great word play and delightful illustrations by Mike Chapman.'

'The wonderfully colourful characters of Henry the Fifth – the Royal Goldfish, Lord Squigglebottom and Princess Bambella had 4-year-old Abby in stitches laughing her head off at their antics. We both enjoyed finding out how Toot manages to fulfil his dream. This is a fabulous book with wonderful illustrations. Abby was trying hard to find a way to sneak this book into her already groaning bookcase of “favourite” books.'
