Who’s saying what about I Don’t Like Cheese


Hannah and Mike’s number one fan!




Reading Time, The Children’s Book Council of Australia

Reading Time Logo

This perfectly packaged simple tale is sweet and engaging, with a fun moral to tempt fussy eaters, and a little bit of learning about food in other cultures to top it off.


Perth West Australian, May 2015

“This is an appealing story that immediately brought to mind the amazing celebrations for … Harmony day, where the children sample food from so many different countries…it would be a perfect story to include”

“Superstar Writer – Hannah Chandler always knew she wanted to be an author. She was pleasantly surprised when at the age of 11 her first book was published! Now 12, Hannah tells us about her future writing goals.”

Family in Focus – Review, March 2015

This delightful picture book explores how even the fussiest eaters can be tempted to try new flavours. And, if you’re anything like Mike, you might find you develop quite a taste for international cuisine along the way!”

Taupo Times – Review, March 2015

While children will be able to relate to eating tasty things over things they don’t like, at the same time they will be learning where certain foods come from … While I Don’t Like Cheese may not be a magic wand solution for all children, it is certainly worth a try and is a nice little read that non-fussy eaters are sure to enjoy as well.”

Upstart Magazine – Review, March 215

What’s it like being a 12-year-old author?
It’s pretty amazing because I’ve always dreamed of becoming an author one day and the fact that I get to live my dream at the age of 12 is very surreal.”

We loved reading Hannah's book! We thought it was amazing and can't wait for the sequel ????

Nov 13, 2014 by Hannah's Class 6G

We think this is the best book ever...especially because Hannah, who is in our class, wrote it! It is really clever how Hannah came up with the idea of a mouse not liking cheese. It explores themes such as 'trying new things', 'multicutural elements', 'friendships between humans and animals' and 'days of the week'. An excellent book for any child to explore! We have enjoyed many stories from Hannah and can't wait to read the sequel!
