Praise for this book:

'If you have enjoyed some of Kitamura's previous books, then you are in for another treat with this latest publication. The story is pacy and thrilling and the voyage dangerous, but the fantasy element makes for an exciting but safe read…Captain Toby is a book which can be used at any age, for reading aloud or for exploring aspects of reading and writing with particular pages.' Just Imagine

'A surreal and dramatic story that shows the power of imagination - with the most beautiful illustrations! I cannot recommend it highly enough!' I teach things

'So distinctive is his artwork. It's a superb flight of imagination such as a child might have giving rise to a captivating adventure. Get hold of a copy now.' Seaside Reader (Jane Sandell)

'Satoshi Kitamura's style is distinctive and text and illustration are perfectly matched here.' English Association

'Kitamura's illustration is full of colour and creativity, and adults and children will adore both his moody skies and stormy seas as well as his not-very-scary octopus (who is actually quite adorable). Perfect for a stormy night's bedtime read or at any time a fun read is required.' Booktrust
