“Young readers will laugh out loud.” -WritingWA
“Perfect for junior readers, both boys and girls.” – Lamont Books
“Kids will love the attitude, the action, the vivid cartoon-style illustration; and adults will love the zany, over the top humour, and the happy ending that will bring smiles all round.” – Reading Time, Children’s Book Council of Australia reviews
” [The S.Tinker Inc.] books are absolutely hilarious! Some of the funniest books I’ve read. Confident readers will love them but they are great to hook those kids who ‘don’t like reading’ … an invaluable addition to your graphic novel collection.” – Zac McCallum, My Best Friends Are Books
