“Some very cool, new, imaginative and creative ideas for building dens.”
“From the beginner to the most experienced of den builders there is something in this book for everyone.”
“This book was absolutely fantastic and led to hours of creative play and imaginative fun. The book is great because unlike a lot of other children’s books, it is designed in a much more unique and relatable way, using photographs rather than just illustrations or cartoon style drawings.”
