“They are wonderful” The Times
From the beginning, there is a magic about this piece. The music of the original score lures the audience into the world of the woods and river bank with warmth and charm; having a tranquil, Nick Drake-like, quality to it.The actors are wonderful to watch; totally immersed in their characters and the story telling process. The puppets are nicely crafted; the Amazing Toad is a particularly delightful creation and there is a very imaginative use of headgear to represent various modes of transport, including the shiny cars Toad is so much obsessed by.
