Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE FRANK SHOW: The story delivers a positive message with subversive wit and charm - The Irish Times A quirky book that bridges the age gap - Junior Magazine Mackintosh's anarchic illustrations are hilarious but there's a serious point about how much the older generation has to offer children, including loads of fun. - The Herald Praise for MARSHALL ARMSTRONG IS NEW TO OUR SCHOOL: Utterly unpredictable from one page to the next, this is a seriously funny book. The Independent On Sunday I think this book is fantastic because I can read it myself and I love the pictures and the way it looks. The story is really, really good and fantastic because it's strange and weird. Child's review on the Guardian's children's book site.
