Reviews

Pure, joyous silliness abounds -- James Lovegrove * Financial Times * An entertaining, funny and fast-moving story, highly illustrated in colour, with lots of maps and labels to follow. * IBW Children's Book Guide, The Bookseller * A hilarious graphic adventure. * The Metro * For a fast-paced humorous adventure, look no further [...] This book is ideal for young readers building the stamina for longer reads. [...] There's plenty of slapstick and irony which will delight young readers. There are also puns for the grown-ups. And of course, who could not be amused by Alan the Almighty Albatross? This will definitely have appeal with older readers looking for a quick, fun read. * The School Librarian *

About the Author

Alex Milway has always enjoyed making up stories and, after leaving art college, he discovered that he liked to write and illustrate them as well. His interest in furry creatures first reared its head in the The Mousehunter trilogy, where weird and wonderful mice ran riot all over the world. In The Mythical 9th Division, the fur quota got even bigger, as he had to master the art of drawing a troop of yetis whose main purpose was to save the world. His new series, Pigsticks and Harold, features a furry hamster and a decidedly un-furry pig. Alex is now a full-time author-illustrator and works from his home in London, SE20.
