The Bare Bum Gang and the Football Face-Off Reviews


"Besides getting the all-male world of small boys to a T, it has irresistible instructions about how to make fart-bombs" -- Amanda Craig * The Times *
"Likely to appeal even to reluctant readers because it is funny and uninhibitedly improper, it is also well observed about boys and their attitude to girls" -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times *
"An engagingly witty story, it offers ready boy-appeal - though girls, too, will appreciate its sharp stance on gender stereotyping" -- Kate Agnew * Guardian Education *
"There's a fine line between crude and funny, and McGowan treads it expertly. If this doesn't get 7- to 9-year-olds reading, nothing will" -- Dinah Hall * Daily Telegraph *
"A laugh-out-loud tale" -- Jennifer Taylor * The Bookseller *
