Praise for The Shark-Headed Bear-Thing
“The Shark-Headed Bear-Thing is a pants-wettingly funny adventure story, with a misfit bunch of loveable and occasionally inept main characters.” – BookZone
“This is one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s really funny and there aren’t any boring bits. I think other children my age would love to read it.” – James Woods, LoveReading4Kids
“If you’re looking for the perfect read aloud for ages 8 and up you really can’t go past The Shark-Headed Bear-Thing. I guarantee it will be a winner!” – Best Friends Are Books
“Absolutely brilliant. Gripping and and belly laughing throughout the whole book. Even my 12 year old son came in to listen to my younger son reading it to me. We loved all the characters. We will be buying the next in the series.” – Amazon reviewer
