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
