The Scotsman

This book made me laugh out loud.

Ugatha's Uncle Ugstein was considerably more inventive than your average sort of caveman.

Even so it was odd that he should have the idea for a vacuum-cleaner when........ that precise moment six hundred and twenty thousand years in the future, young Doreen Pegg was building..


One of the best yet in the Jets series, taking page-layout into entirely new realms of wit and ingenuity. 
Young Waterstones - Summer Reading. 

Captions, speech bubbles, cartoons and different typefaces and styles are an integral part of the story. Excellent. Junior Education.

This is the long-awaited follow up to Bob Wilson's classic 'Ging Gang Goolie...' - a huge best-seller, still going strong and deservedly so. Wilson's combination of wacky humour and mad cartoon- style illustration is terrific. Why not do yourself a favour - (because you'll love reading them too) and get both

This rollicking comedy with it's puns and word play teaches more about the evolution of language than any text book.
