Mats Linstrøm, 09.07.2008, Dala-Demokraten [Sweden]:
"[..] –mime, sing, rap, dance; all in an acrobat-like quick pace, using involvement and imagination. They practically fly onstage. And they do it all: King, wizard, guardians, horses, lion, mice and the main character, the proudest, smartest and perhaps vilest of them all: The master cat in his boots. But the superior trio doesn't stop there. They are the props too: Doors, roofs, the castle of the king. Only three jesters are onstage, but they create a whole world with exterior and interior imagination. This is physical theatre at its best."
