This is such a cute children’s book and has quickly become a staple read on my daughter’s most favourite pile of bedtime stories.

My girls love this handsomely illustrated story, which teaches the virtues of bravery and teamwork in a gentle fashion. There is a lovely surprise at around the halfway point, which genuinely took my breath away with its innovation. Betty and Cosmo are endearing characters who accept each others faults and together, through their friendship, become braver and make a huge difference to each other’s lives.
