‘Your books are so awesome and I love your books.’
‘ I enjoyed your novels…It was awesome….Waiting for your next butterfingers novel :)!
‘Packed with lots of fun and pranks that define childhood’.
‘What great fun! It brings back long lost memories of my Prep School days’.
‘The book (Clean Bowled, Butterfingers!) has all the elements I liked as a child. The school comes to life in a most amusing way and the incorrigible young boy in the novel adds to the charm. The book is a page turner and the sports element makes it a compelling read.’
‘An exuberant mix of school, cricket and fun that bowled me over and kept me laughing from beginning to end. A delightful read.’
‘What with protest rallies to plan, less than friendly teachers and more girls in school to deal with, there’s no time to take a breather’.
