Libri et Liberi Journal 3.2 (2014): 449-452

In my opinion, younger, older, academic or non-academic readers can try this book and take advice from it.

ELT Journal 68.3 (2014): 352-355

It is high time that the role of children’s literature as a powerful change agent […] in developing learners’ literacy skills, intercultural awareness, and critical and creative thinking as upheld in this book was given due recognition in second language education.
