Reviews

Fardell is an expert at adapting comic book techniques to the picture book...appeal from infants to teens. -- Clive Barnes Books for Keeps Inventive and useful at different levels. Great to read at story times with noises, or one-to-one, scrutinising the illustrations. Peters Bookselling Services, Book of the Week Fantastic monster names and a plucky heroine make this a real winner of a tale. TBK Magazine, Book of the Month Truly amusing, strange, gripping and entertaining. Early Years Educator The ultimate book of cliff-hangers. Very funny and page-turning with clear and colourful illustrations and enough detail to fascinate the most curious child. Armadillo Magazine
