What people think about The Abominators
I read this book to my boys, aged 11 and 9 over the course of two evenings (we couldn’t put it down!). It is a hilarious family read with a wicked sense of humour that appeals on many levels. Both boys have re-read it, the oldest simply because it was so entertaining and the youngest, who struggles with reading, was motivated to get from one funny antic to the next! Very much looking forward to the next instalment.
“Laugh out loud!”
Brilliant!- both my boys loved reading this book and when I took a look it even had me laughing out loud. Perfect for kids aged 7 – 10 who like cheeky humour.
We can’t wait for the next one.
As a headteacher of a primary school, I’ve just read this book to see whether it would inspire and encourage boys of 7+ to read. It will! We will be putting some copies in school and look forward to the publication of the next two in the series.
From my 7yr old: “Best book ever!”
My 7 year old twin girls adore this book. They’ve read it 6 times and find it hilarious. They love the character Cecil and his extremely funny ways. One of those gems of a book that gets real belly laughs.
“My grandson enjoyed this almost as much as I did!”
This is a thoroughly entertaining book, eminently readable by its target age range and great fun. It’s `rude’ enough to offer a guilty appeal without going too far. I thought my grandson was going to wet himself, laughing hysterically at times!
The book has many interesting characters and is nicely illustrated. It should appeal to just about all 7-11-year-old boys and many girls as well.
Looking forward very much to the next one.
“Hilarious read” Rob Smith (Amazon Vine Top 500 Reviewer)
I got this for my 9 year old boy, he has read lots of similar books such asGenius Ideas (Mostly) (Tom Gates) and also the Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Book 1), but he doesn’t like the books that have that comic look text to them where the text is at all sorts of angles and there are speech bubbles with daft scribbled drawings, wimpy kid has loads.
The Abominators has proper text and layout, much better, the drawing are fun and don’t take away from the reading.
My little lad loved the book, thought it was funny and had a smile on his face as he was reading.
Loved the characters Mucker, Boogster, Cheesy and Bob, and of course Cecil Trumpington-Potts
Hilarious read, reminded me in some ways of me reading some early Tom sharpe books that made me laugh out loud.
“funny wunny woo!”
I would highly recommend any books by this author! She has a wicked sense of humour that will make you laugh out loud! Looking forward to the next books!
