Review Text

"A fantastic book. A great book if you've got somebody who's a tweenager" - BBC Radio Humberside, 'Sally in the Afternoon'

"It is obvious the authors of this book had an amazing time creating it and we think a lot of children will have just as much fun discovering how to be awesome." - Parenting Without Tears

"A fantastic book" - Scott Makin, BBC Tees

"This is a wonderful book to share; as a parent with your children, and at a time when many teachers are struggling with motivating and inspiring young people within a narrow and restrictive curriculum this book is upbeat, positive and inspiring, like a burst of sunshine, it should be a set book for all! Highly Recommended!" - Hot Brands Cool Places
