“Children of four upwards should enjoy the revolting habits of this unusual family - such as making bootlace soup, drinking shampoo, and decorating the lounge with rubbish. The cartoon-type illustrations are similarly full of disgusting scenes which youngsters will enjoy studying to find the awful bits.” —KidsBooksNZ
