Praise

“I think it’s the funniest children’s book ever written.  One of the great strengths of the book is its illustration, by Lindsay himself. He was best known as a visual artist, producing thousands of paintings, etchings, drawings, and sculptures, but his pictures for The Magic Pudding are his best work, in my view. They are so vigorous and absurd, so strongly characterized and brilliantly detailed, that my eye delights in them still.” —Philip Pullman on his favorite children’s book, Publishers Weekly, December 2015  
“A robust fantasy, The Magic Pudding was first published in 1918 but shows few signs of its age…[a] quirky tale about the adventures of Bunyip Bluegum, an irrepressible, polite young koala. He meets various eccentric characters who bust into song and rhyme. In the introduction to the new edition, Philip Pullman…calls Lindsay’s work ‘the funniest children’s book ever written’…You can feel Lindsay carried away on the wings of his own energy.”—USA Today
 
“The illustrations are great fun, the characters burst into comic verse at the drop of a hat, and it’s hard to resist.”—The Horn Book Magazine
