This book is really funny - it's just hilarious. The start of the book was brilliant - it made me laugh out loud. In fact the whole book made me laugh out loud many times. I one hundred per cent think everyone else will like this book. * Owen, aged 8 *
We have just the last chapter to go. The class love it and wouldn't let me put it down. * Sian Downs, Year 4 teacher *
I had to read this after hearing Owen laughing so much! This book should come with a warning - Be careful, this book will make you want to read aloud to strangers just to show how funny it is! * Sally Batten *
Even reluctant readers will be drawn in by the amusing pictures and the good use of varied font styles which makes the book appealing and not in the least daunting. Great fun, especially when read aloud. * Parents in Touch *
This wonderfully zany story is perfectly paired with the scratchy stylings of David Tazzyman; ensuring fans of Mr Gum will be drawn to this story is a smart move. Sharp wit and genuinely funny storytelling keep everything moving along at a rattling speed. It's a short read, perfect for primary schools and could enchant a few reluctant older readers too. Clever, surprising and satisfyingly silly. * Katie Clapham, Booktrust *
Dougherty is very funny and I like an adventure that has a natter with itself, a postmodern novel for tweens... due to the novel's clever storytelling - you don't need to be Terry Eagleton to appreciate it. * Alex O'Connell, The Times Children's Book of the Week *
A sure-fire winner * Imogen Russell Williams *
Laugh out loud humour with some wonderful illustrations from David Tazzyman... make this a super read. * Kathy Lindsay, The School Librarian *
Full of good humour, this hilarious story will appeal to all young readers. * Ruth Swindon, The Best New Children's Books: Summer 2014 *
An anarchic story of a brother-and-sister team * Lorna Bradbury, 'Christmas Books 2014: best children's books to read', The Telegraph *
... a gigglefest from start to finish. * Minerva Reads Blog *
