Review:

Praise for The Clumsies Make a Mess: "Anderson has a gift for combining simple, sparse elements - meek man, bully boss, shabby office, talking mice - to wonderfully surreal effect." Financial Times "Charming debut... With its stylish cartoons and pages that look crumpled, blotted and scattered with biscuit crumbs, this book will win youngsters over with its child-like illogicality and the way in which Howard goes happily along with anything that the anarchic inventiveness of the Clumsies leads him to." Sunday Times Culture - Children's Book of the Week "Occasionally a book comes along that makes my children collapse into fits of giggles... my children were near hysterical by the end of the first paragraph."The Telegraph Magazine - Children's Book of the Week "The kids will love getting mucky with them" Irish World "If you enjoy these stories as much as I did, you will be waiting for the next book in the series" Families Magazine
