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

"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

"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

"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

Praise for The Clumsies Make a Mess of the Big Show:

“Ideal for children who like a little bit of wizard-free, humorous fantasy in a silly but everyday setting.” – Junior

About the Author:

Sorrel Anderson hasn’t always been a writer. Once upon a time she worked as a civil servant, and it was there that she found the inspiration for her characters – quite literally. One morning she came into work to find a pair of mice in a plastic bag under her desk, eating up her biscuits. She named them Purvis and Mickey Thompson, and that very day, the Clumsies were born!
