These books have all the humour and slapstick you'd expect, but it's their enormous heart and genuine diversity that makes them stand out in a very crowded genre. -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
Warm-hearted fun * The Daily Mail on SUPERHERO STREET *
A laugh-out-loud read full of capes and japes! If you like Superheroes this is right down your Street! * Danny Wallace, presenter and bestselling author, on SUPERHERO STREET *
Phil "BOOKCRUSHER" Earle has written one, funny, fabulous, pile driving BLAST of a book. (Read it in Lycra for full wrestling experience.) * Liz Pichon on DEMOLITION DAD *
Sara Ogilvie's beautifully drawn illustrations add real life and humour * David Tazzyman, illustrator of MR GUM *
Down to earth humour, somewhat silly and decidedly positive, this is a lively read that children will thoroughly enjoy * Parents In Touch *
This very funny story has emotive undertones that give us plenty of food for thought * Primary Times *
...there's a lot of affection here, as we watch Masher's transformation over the chapters. It's very refreshing to see him presented as a rounded character. Throw into the mix Ogilvie's deliciously detailed sketches, and this is a fun read, indeed. * BookTrust *
This is the third instalment of the Storey Street series by Yorkshire author Phil Earle as he expands the ever-engaging story street with a brilliant female hero * Big Issue (North) *
Part of the Storey Street series, Phil Earle's book has all the usual wit, pace and silliness * Book Trust *
This is Earle's best to date: the hilarity and rapid pace are balanced by the very real issues of dealing with emotions, bullying and conforming to expectations. A fun and heart-warming read, peppered with wit * Inis *
Aimed at younger children, this novel has plenty of twists and intrigue to keep readers engaged but also touches on some larger issues: the unhappiness of bullies and the importance of having the courage to do the Right Thing * School Librarian *
Hilarious and heartfelt it's really unusual to see the bully at the centre of the story. Instead of Masher being a one dimensional baddy, Phil allows us to see how his personality has been shaped and influenced by a dastardly, devious Dad. It has an emotional depth to it which I found really touching. * Book Lover Jo *
