    “The Gift” by Victoria Pajkowski is an mesmerizing story that I believe will empower generations of kids how to successfully overcome bullying. This is a wonderful addition to any library and school! Beautifully written & simply exquisite work of art!
    Highly recommended!

    A beautifully written book that my family and I have loved reading. It’s wonderfully illustrated, with such a lovely message for all to enjoy and appreciate.

  • Steve Brammer

    A fantastic book, well worth buying.

  • Alison

    I bought a copy of this beautiful little book for a friend's daughter. Aimed at children, but with something for the adults reading with them to ponder, it is filled with colourful pictures which Renana loved. It is a perfect bedtime story, so positive and heartwarming. I would thoroughly recommend 'The Gift' as an engaging and enjoyable read and a great gift for any child. I really hope Lizzie Jane shares more of her lovely stories!

  • Carol Robinson

    The gift is a wonderful book. Lizzie has such great ideas and imagination. My children and I loved this heartwarming story. We were not disappointed. We can’t wait for her second book and to wow us again. Highly recommend.

  • Samantha Smith

    The Gift is a wonderful read, that I enjoyed immensely. I read it a few times myself before I read it out loud to my grandchildren and they absolutely loved it and were enthralled with Esther and sat there waiting patiently to hear what happened next!
    Lizzie Jayne managed to capture love, innocence, and childhood in one book and I can’t wait for the next one!
    The illustrations are so beautiful too and capture the essence of the whole story! The Gift is surely a gift!!
