Take a look inside

“Lou Peacock’s lively, pertinent tale hinges on a very clever last-line pay-off and is wonderfully illustrated by Lisa Sheehan with pastel shades, scribbly textures and Richard Scarry-esque anthropomorphic caricature.”

“Critique of unbridled capitalism? Maybe. Sprightly fable with a moral? Definitely. The illustrations are a huge bonus, and not of the banker kind, either.”
