Nayuleska's thoughts

This story has a soft family feel - I could feel the love between the parents and the children. It reminded me of an outing I had to a cheese maker when I was little (although I didn't get to go in and put on protective hats). Kiwi has help embracing his fear (occupanied by a cute looking worm (which I'm usually scared of)) and Orange is the narrator. I love her little ladybird who helps explain who cheese is made in this 10/10 read.
