But as Gregory is a good listener and it's 'in his blood', Jim's breakfast turns him into a good listener too and suddenly school storytime changes from Literacy Hour to Niteracy Hour.

Niteracy Hour Press Reviews

Witty repartee and extraordinary adventures . . . Dougherty has created an appealing combination of imagination, gross-out factor, classroom drama and humour. The illustrations are a perfect accompaniment of simplicity and silliness. Young confident readers will be delighted by this very lousy adventure and eager for a future sequel * Armadillo * A book which could acquire cult status * The School Librarian * This book is unique . . . Its appealing layout, large text and its simple yet effective black and white illustrations work very well. It's a great example of the quirky humour that younger readers enjoy * Children's Books Ireland * A delightfully offbeat view of school life * Junior * Parents my squirm at the subject matter but there's no denying that this is a hilarious story * South Wales Argus *
