Review quote

Imaginative, quirky, inventive - a few words that come to mind when reading this amazing book. Intriguing illustrations are a key part of a book which abounds with weird and wacky ideas and flows along wonderfully. * Parents in Touch * The story engages the reader quickly. It is a zany and funny story as quirky as the author's picture books . . . the visual imagery is fantastic in both senses of the word. The sheer vibrant fun of the story shines throughout. * School Librarian * Snow's drawings suggest a Dickensian town, and his caricatures with their gormless faces and his lovingly rendered machinery make this book (now a website and film) as much fun to look at as it is to read. * Sunday Times * Here Be Monsters kicks the imagination into overdrive with belting characters, adorable illustrations and other fantastic inventions that will keep a child's appetite for fun fully satisfied. With superb illustrations and a lavishly imaginative plot, Here Be Monsters suggests that Roald Dahl might well have a 21st century successor - and that JK Rowling could have some competition on her hands' * The Big Issue *show more
