Review:

"A warm, big-hearted tale with a hero you can't help but cheer for" (Matt Haig)

"An unpretentious, accessible comedy... a fine example of the things that happen when one dares to think outside the box" ( Guardian)

"A triumphant tale of life, loss, hope and family" ( Big Issue)

"An excellent, incisive modern satire that manages to be simultaneously touching, funny and thought-provoking" ( Glasgow Herald)

"One of the very few writers who can remember precisely what childhood was really like, how crazy and intense it really was. Utterly unpretentious, totally engaging and very funny" (Mark Haddon)
