“"[The LinkyThinks Descriptionary book is] a brilliant, inspiring idea, beautifully realised to encourage kids to create their own masterpieces! Alexander may have inspired the next J.K. Rowling!””
Matt Lucas, Character Actor, Comedy Writer and TV Personality,
“"An incredible mixture of fun and clever learning as well as being gross, inspiring, cheerful and beautifully designed. My son has always been keen to write and express himself but both of us have lacked confidence in approaching it. [The Descriptionary book] is a wonderful solution. I highly recommend it for kids - or anyone really - who want to encounter language in a different and exciting way.””
Dr Xand van Tulleken, Doctor and TV Presenter, CBBC’s ‘Operation Ouch’
