full of laughs and fast action... will appeal to the adult reader as well as the intended audience
[this book] made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion
a big, bold cast of brilliant characters, fun and laughter all the way, an entertaining historical twist and a story with a warm and compassionate heart... one of the best middle grade series' to grace our bookshelves
[delivers] plenty of laughs
Farnaby's skill is evident not just in the gags, but in how he ties up loose ends... [a] hoot of a debut.
From the first page, the originality, quirky characters and subversive humour in this whacky, inverted time-slip novel grab the imagination and don't let go. This compelling debut novel from one of the authors/stars of TV's Horrible Histories is big-hearted, inventive and very, very funny.
