Press reviews

A brilliantly funny story about an amazingly misbehaving boy that comes with almost as many crazy, comical illustrations as there are words.
Lancashire Evening Post
The crazy plotline, eccentric characters and witty footnotes and author comments had me laughing out loud... Cool illustrations and design make these ideal for reluctant readers but honestly everyone will enjoy this excellent series.
If you haven’t come across Compton Valance before and you’re a fan of Wimpy Kid, Captain Underpants and their ilk, this is a new hero to get stuck into.
Manchester Evening News
Fantastically funny and delightfully disgusting time-travel fiction with hilarious black-and-white illustrations by Lizzie Finlay.

Reader reviews

Hysterical, rude, yucky and very clever - just what every book should be!
Absolutely superb book. Another triumph from Matt Brown. My son is obsessed with this series - he loves to read, but with these it's something else: "when's the next one out mum?", "oh my goodness this is so funny - read this...." and on and on! The characters are brilliant, the writing incredibly absorbing and illustrations wonderful. My son read this cover to cover in a weekend (is it wrong to insist that he has to stop reading because it's time for bed?!?) and is now desperate for the fourth installment. Totally brilliant....
