Review quote

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 Snow's drawings suggest a Dickensian town, and his caricatures with their gormless faces and his lovingly rendered machinery make this book as much fun to look at as it is to read. NICOLETTE JONES, The Sunday Times Snow has written an amiable, at times surreal story accompanied by hundreds of fantastic black ink drawing, executed in a style half way between Mervyn Peake and Edward Gorey. It's not often a text gets as generously illustrated at this these days, and some of the architectural drawings are particularly atmospheric. Books for Keeps 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.
