Review quote

"Hilarious, yet serious about the environmental issues" * Guardian * "A gross-out plot likely to appeal . . . A satisfyingly different kind of adventure book for kids" * Inis * "Aquatic high jinks in this entertaining ecological tale of responsibility and revenge" * The Bookseller * "With real villainy and real right and wrong issues but told in convincingly involving, over the top manner" * The School Librarian * "Flush is pacy and amusing. It will entertain readers with a sense of justice, a concern for the environment and an understanding that the simplest and whackiest ideas are often the best" * Writeaway! *show more
