'Felicity Fly' is a great way to address those little worries around the house that all children have, be it creepy crawlies or the dark. With lovely illustrations and strong concise sentences, it really is a lovely story!Christopher Smith Bookseller, Waterstones (5 stars)My granddaughter loves this book being read to her just before bedtime, Felicity Fly has become her favourite character! Also when out and about in the car the cd that comes with the book is a godsend :) Amazon (5 stars)My daughter (aged 3) loved the characters, she particularly liked William Washing Machine with his cockney accent.I would definitely recommend this and look forward to the next..

I love this book with great characters and illustrations
Brilliant characters and poems!
Wonderful book and a fun read.
My children are scared of the dark, so thanks to Willamena the Woodlouse, it's making them think differently. Good luck Christina
My daughter has always been scared of the washing machine and the character William Washing Machine has definitely helped with her fear. Our washing machine is now called William!
We had our book signed by Christina in WHSmith York, after hearing about a York schools project, encouraging Fathers Reading Everyday. Our daughters love all three books. Well done Christina, keep up the good work.
I take Felicity Fly with me when I babysit my niece, she likes to sing along to Sissy Silverfish.
Great idea. The children love interacting together with their own stageshow of Felicity Fly!
Having six grandchildren all of different ages and abilities, we have found Felicity Fly to be very entertaining, as the older children are encouraging the younger ones to read. The children love the character accents.
Great book with quirky characters.
Both my children love Felicity Fly books. We have a lot of fun at bedtime trying out the different accents. Simon the spider and Willamena Woodlouse are their favourites. Good luck Christina
Brilliant idea. The audio has really helped my son improve his reading with the read along. Thank you.
My sons favourite character is William Washing Machine, he likes to mimic the cockney accent.
Good luck Christina. We now have all three Felicity Fly books and look forward to the next.
My niece Emily is scared of spiders and this book has been great, as she loves Simon Spider.
A wonderful book for children learning to read. We have this in our salon, which keeps all the young children entertained.
We have all three books in the series, and they are all equally entertaining.
