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