“Genuinely one of the funniest books I've ever read (especially with the genius illustrations). Absolutely brilliant, kids will love it!” DALE NEAL Author of ‘MY GRANDAD IS AN ALIEN’
“Dirt is only skin deep, but on this occasion, George has broken the barriers of science, and has ‘reeked’ havoc, upon our understanding of Grossness, creating a newly found hypotheses to how he did it.” IG OLIVER, Author of ‘THE BUTTERFLY BEE LADY AND THE BEE’
The Mushy-pead, stinky-bummed, foul-mouthed, “Gross George” is without doubt the most gloriously, gorgeously gross school boy you’ll ever encounter. If there’s one thing he hates more than a shower once a week it’s shower once a month! He’s foul, fetid and farty. He’s rank, reeky and repulsive. He’s whiffy, sniffy and very iffy! But most of all he’s very, very funny! IAN BILLINGS, Author of ‘BILLY PLONKA AND THE GROT LABORATORY’
Guaranteed to have you reading every page of grossness!!! Not only does this live up to the front cover warning of “Epic Grossness”, it well and truly surpasses it! Each detail brought to you in gloriously, grotty gross detail! WILLIAM MALONE, Author of ‘ZACH, LOTTIE REUBEN AND ME!’
From the very first page, this is a story jam-packed with anarchy that many children will adore. They'll love George Bogtrotter: a modern-day antihero who'll make children laugh out loud and shriek, "YUK!" in equal measure (and pleasure). George is an old-school punk who can't help being disgusting. George doesn't like rules, at least not where mean Mr Walsh is concerned. Who can blame George for his rebelliousness?. As I always tell my class: adults, just like children, have to earn respect. Being older doesn't give you a golden ticket to "Respect-Land. The illustrations by Chris White are fabulous: full of energy, charm and humour. They bring to life this high-octane, often surreal and wonderfully wild story perfectly. I really like how we see the stream of consciousness evolving inside George's unique brain. And even though he breaks the rules and is bogie-obsessed, it's hard not to like him. Having a naughty streak doesn't mean you're cruel. The best people I know, including the adults, have a strong sense of naughtiness running through their core. George's Gross-fest reaches new levels as the story comes to its conclusion.
Is George Bogtrotter too gross? You decide ... MARK BIRD, Author/Poet/Teacher
