Reviews

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 Culture - Children's Book of the Week

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

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

About the Author

Sorrel Anderson hasn’t always been a writer. Once upon a time she worked as a civil servant, and it was there that she found the inspiration for her characters – quite literally. One morning she came into work to find a pair of mice in a plastic bag under her desk, eating up her biscuits. She named them Purvis and Mickey Thompson, and that very day, the Clumsies were born!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
