"One of our cleverest writer-illustrators." -- Toby Clements Telegraph Children's Books of the Year 2010 "Delicious. I love this book so much I want to eat it up." New York Times, Notable Children's Books 2012 "Fantastic monster names and a plucky heroine make this a real winner of a tale!" Tbk Magazine, Book of the Month "Fardell is an expert at adapting comic book techniques to the picture book...appeal from infants to teens." -- Clive Barnes Books For Keeps "Inventive and useful at different levels. Great to read at story times with noises, or one-to-one, scrutinising the illustrations." Peters Bookselling Services
