Reviews

'An inspiring story, and a really funny one too.' * Spectator (Books of the Year) *
'The book deftly handles issues around family life, as well as activism, with a light-hearted touch. With lots of humour and a cast of weird but wonderful characters, and Jim Tierney's modish illustrations, this is the perfect feel-good book from one of South Africa's top children's authors.' * BookTrust *
'Quirky, charming and very funny, but with a real emotional punch. It is the perfect place to start for someone looking to move on from The Wimpy Kid books.' * Anthony McGowan, author of The Donut Diaries *
'Instantly engaging, funny and robust.' * New Statesman *
'Jacobs authentically sketches the main characters' deeper motivations - especially Leila's reaction to her parents' divorce. Ultimately, Jacobs delivers a kind and uplifting novel about two characters taking a stand.' * Publishers Weekly *
'It made me chuckle on the very first page. A story with a warm heart and characters you want to spend time with.' -- Jill Coleman - BookTrust Director of Children's Books
'A small gem with interesting characters touching on issues such as divorce, friendship and the outsiders in our society.' * Die Burger *
'Jaco Jacobs undoubtedly has the gift of writing entertaining stories. His characters are believable, and ever so often there's a hint of humour to make the reading experience even more pleasurable.' * IBBY *
'Jaco Jacobs is a natural story spinner.' * Goodreads *
