"Kim is Australia's Roald Dahl in the making and Sarah the next Quentin Blake. What a team!"  —Kirsty Murray, author, The Secret Life of Maeve Lee Kwong"A charming, empowering, offbeat story of middle-school ups and downs."  —School Library Journal on Pip: The Story of Olive"Acton’s mad-dash, cartoon-style illustrations bear a family resemblance to Quentin Blake’s; their light touch is nicely suited to Kane’s pokerfaced storytelling." —Publishers Weekly
