The Lovereading4Kids comment
Hilarious chaos is created by the resourceful Clumsies who have a wish to be helpful but a habit of making everything go very badly wrong. This time, to help Howard out of having to make a fool of himself, the Clumsies decide to wreck the nasty Mr Bullerton’s Big Show. From then on, everything that can possibly go wrong does! The slapstick humour at the heart of the story is infectious.

The Clumsies Make a Mess of the Big Show by Sorrel Anderson
The Clumsies are back in their third and most hilarious book yet! Full of the surreal invention and sparkling wit we've come to expect, this latest instalment will have everyone checking under their desks for talking mice! Howard's evil boss Mr Bullerton has decided to put on a Big Show at work -- and he wants Howard to sing! Trouble is, Howard's singing is worse than awful! and Mr Bullerton knows it. Now Howard faces an epic humiliation. Can the Clumsies help by turning Mr Bullerton's concert into total chaos? Silly question.
Praise for The Clumsies Make a Mess:
Anderson has a gift for combining simple, sparse elements -- meek man, bully boss, shabby office, talking mice -- to wonderfully surreal effect. Financial Times
Charming debut! With its stylish cartoons and pages that look crumpled, blotted and scattered with biscuit crumbs, this book will win youngsters over with its child-like illogicality and the way in which Howard goes happily along with anything that the anarchic inventiveness of the Clumsies leads him to. - Sunday Times
Occasionally a book comes along that makes my children collapse into fits of giggles! my children were near hysterical by the end of the first paragraph - The Telegraph Magazine - Children's Book of the Week
The kids will love getting mucky with them Irish World If you enjoy these stories as much as I did, you will be waiting for the next book in the series - Families Magazine
