'Out with the paintbrushes and in with the fingertips, this book guides you through making some GREAT fingerprint art through pages upon pages of beautifully drawn illustrations. This is a fine follow-up to Marion's previous book, so she's charmed us twice in book form now.' 
Anya Lawrence, It's Nice That

'Any gainful activity that keeps little fingers occupied for any amount of time is bound to find favour with parents. The fact that this imaginative art book is also brilliant fun is sure to delight your young artist, too'.
Junior Magazine

'Both instructive AND interactive. Kids are encouraged to leave their stamp on the pages of the book and make anything from a bunch of balloons to a pyramid. ... This is a book that you (and a child) will want to sit down and read cover to cover before even trying a project, although, believe me, your hands will be itching to get into some ink or paint.' 

'It doesn't matter what age demographic this book is intended for, it is so well-designed and executed that it is elevated to an art book. But it's not just about good design, there are pages and pages to encourage you to get down and get messy.'
Make & Celebrate blog

'The author begins with fun fingerprint facts and goes on to teach simple yet smart and effective practical techniques that show how limitless art made from hands and fingers can be.'
