NZ Review `Every page of this book in joyous, imaginative and life-affirming ... All the Ways to be Smart is a celebration of what childhood can be, and it will likely become a classic.' -Louise Pfanner, bookseller and author/illustrator of the `Louise Builds ...' series, Books+Publishing `The book, All the Ways to Be Smart, aims to teach children that there is more to being smart than reading to maths and encourages the pursuit of the arts.' -The Leader `This book is funny and tender, exuberant and whimsical, and an absolute joy to pore over ... Colpoys' distinctive illustrations fizz with her trademark charm and vivacity; the colours burst out of the page with wild abandonment.' -Bronte Coates, Readings `Joyful and vibrant ...

Children will want to pore over each page, while the seamless read-out-loud rhyming pattern will ensure this is a favourite for years to come.' -Kids' Book Review `This collaboration between Davina Bell and Alison Colpoys is a celebration of what makes us us, of the strengths that we all have within ourselves - whether we're dreamers, adventurers, readers or artists ...
