First Review of ‘Evan And The Bottom Rockets’ and ‘Evan And The Bottom Rockets On Holiday’

‘These seem like really fun kids books! I think children, especially boys, will love the irreverent toilet humour here. You truly have a gift for ridiculous gross out comedy.

There are some wonderful, horribly evocative, similes used in both books that I think will have children in stitches (and their parents frowning somewhat disapprovingly, but surely that’s part of the appeal!) I love how many scenes escalate to absolutely ridiculous levels…

You’ve also got some really snappy dialogue that flows quickly and naturally between the characters. The conversation with Doctor Bottom is particularly great for this, and I love Mr Hart-Boodle’s increasing and insistent irritation at the doctor constantly getting his name wrong. I imagine that plenty of children will be able to draw unflattering parallels between their own fathers and Mr Hart-Boodle!’
