Every child in New Zealand
should read these books.

Not much books can hold my attention for a long time this one held my attention for the hole time.
Reade Vegar, age 11*
I really like all the personality you have given all the boats … I can see them right in front of my eyes. I can easily imagine the Daldy series being on T.V and a series that lots of people watch and enjoy, because it’s kind of like a slice of real life…. Maybe boats really can talk? That’s something I really like…. I love it that I know where all the places are…. I think that deodar’s voice was the perfect age group for me.
I liked all of it and there is nothing I didn’t like… I think the story is good for little kids.
