Author review by Antoinette Brooks:  ‘ A beautiful book with vibrant illustrations which are sure to capture the attention of your little one. Bridget Marzo has created a gem of a book that shows toddlers and youngsters from diverse backgrounds, both able and differently-abled, and from different cultures too. Each page is a celebration of what makes the reader connected to and part of a community, whilst celebrating their uniqueness too. Young children will love hearing this book read to them, while they explore how the characters grow and develop from page to page.’

Kate Kellaway, The Guardian  There is a particular sort of illustrator who understands that less is more, knows when to stop, sees the virtues of travelling light. Tiz & Ott’s Big Draw by Bridget Marzo (Tate £9.99) captivates with its economy. It encourages children, with an unintimidating gaiety, to draw. Tiz is a marmalade cat (his stripes 18 strokes of an orange crayon, his mouth a single upturned black line). Ott is a cheerier donkey than Eeyore (though in possession of a blue tail). The two artists wield outsized equipment: multicoloured crayon and paintbrush. They learn about creativity: it is best not to sleep on the job; it is sometimes good to collaborate; if you paint a storm, you might get swept away. Adults will derive metaphorical mileage from the story and relish the remedy for a creative block as much as any child: out of a deep hole emerges a rainbow-coloured ladder. A joy of a book – all ages.’
