Sally Tinker, the world’s foremost inventor under the age of 12, is back with a new adventure in invention. When Sally’s nemesis hatches a fowl and poultry plot – turning chickens into dinosaurs – there’s no room for the lily-livered. The chickensaurs are let loose, and Sally and co will need all their pluck to return the world to its rightful pecking order.

Reviews

“a romp of word play and visual imagery … Foley shows a mastery of the format.” – WritingWA

a fast-paced adventure … for middle-grade readers who like a lot of humorous action, this is their book. Nean McKenzie, Buzzwords

“a high-octane story … full of humour and witty puns.”
– Fran Knight, Magpies Magazine

“James Foley has filled the pages of this book with humour, action, surprises and comical chicken puns.”
– Rachael Drummond, Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), Children and Youth Services

” [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

For Gastronauts:
‘Fun, funny and filled with farts, Gastronauts is a wild ride not to be missed.’
Kids’ Book Review

‘hilariously funny … it will  be devoured by emerging readers. Perfect for school and public libraries.’
-Magpies Magazine

For Dungzilla:
4.5 out of 5 stars. Told in a highly graphic style through illustrated panels, this is a genuinely funny story that’s also packed full of knowledge. Beginner readers aged six to eight will not only laugh themselves stupid at the plethora of poo jokes, they’ll also learn a lot about insects and biology.’
– Junior Books+Publishing

‘I liked the book because it was very action packed and so funny … it was different and like nothing I’ve ever read before … I really enjoyed reading this book and I think other children would enjoy this book too.’
– Aaliyah, age 9, YARR-A
