Reviews

"Days of the Bagnold Summer is extremely original, funny, touching and beautifully observed in both the drawing and the writing. There is probably no truer portrait of teenage and parental angst." -- Posy Simmonds
"A universal crowd pleaser...my graphic novel of the year... I love this book so much, I would have to instantly excommunicate any friend who didn't feel the same way - though such is its greatness, this won't ever happen." -- Rachel Cooke * Observer *
"Britain's got a new graphic novel star. This funny, sad, extraordinary study of a heavy metal-loving teen and his long-suffering single mum is so well observed it makes your heart tingle." -- Larushka Ivan-Zadek * Metro *
"Days of the Bagnold Summer captures the humiliation and agony of adolescence with excruciating precision. This short, devastating book haunted me for weeks." -- Seb Hunter, author of 'Hell Bent for Leather'
"This is a memorable household, seemingly passed over by history yet given their rightful place on these pages - and recommended by us as well worth meeting." * thebookbag.co.uk *
