Review: "A Tangle of Tales is a great read-aloud repository for homeroom, storytime, bedtime, or the simple joy of parent-child reading time - highly recommended." Midwest Book Review

"Always wonderful stories: My children love Reg's books and this is no exception! If you want lovely child friendly stories, then look no further. We appreciate that they are written to engage the young child and not scare or worry them." Amazon Review

"Lovely! All of the Reg Down books are simply wonderful. We've never been disappointed. The children always look forward to the next one, which I have them wait for to build up the anticipation ~~~ always makes it even better. Every child I've read them to simply love them. This one is no exception. We're using this one for a reader for an eight year old. It's lovely to read to a child too. Good for ages 5 to 8."  Amazon Review
