“Edie Batstone is a talented writer, essayist, poet and artist. She has combined these talents in her first book " How to wash a puddle." These delightful children's tales will be enjoyed by people of all ages.”

- Joan Brownrigg Barrow, Author & Historical Researcher.

“How to Wash a Puddle has cute and fun poems and pictures, as well as good lessons in it. I am hoping, as many of these situations are starting to arise, that my children will grow and learn from them. There are some good reminders for me in there too! I really enjoyed the book and would highly recommend it, especially to those with children or grandchildren.”

“Hi Edie, The book is delightful. Both the illustrations and the text are wonderful. I was amazed to discover an unexpected masterpiece that bears comparison with the most charming books for children.that I have seen. [I speak as both a lover of books and stories and a father of two now grown children and someone who has often told stories to various children over the years].

Thank you again for the chance to discover such a lovely book,”
