'Want to keep the little ones out from under your feet as you cook dinner? This nifty book could be your saviour. Its large pages are printed with fun designs that kids can customise, whether creating their own pasta shape or learning to draw a blackbird. Once they're done, they can tear out the placemat and put it on the table, ready to recieve dinner'.
'With illustrations like a regular place setting, a scary cartoon or pasta shapes, this book is far more interesting than the usual connect-the-dots activity sheets that restaurants give to the chicken nugget set, and would make a great gift.'
Florence Fabricant, New York Times
