This is hilarious! Who doesn’t like poo balls of ginormous proportions threatening to roll over towns? Or a baby brother who has been enlarged by a resizenator just in time for him to soil his nappy?
Sally Tinker is a cool little inventor who seems to cause more trouble with her inventions than good. But never fear, with her friend, uh hm, I mean colleague, Charli Stevenson, the disasters that arise from Sally’s inventions are cleared up in no time at all! Well, maybe there are some crazy adventures and disturbing dilemmas along the way, but that’s all part of the fun!
Author, James Foley, has used sophisticated language in this quirky graphic novel, which initially made me lean towards an older readership of 12+. However, the graphics are detailed, humorous and support the plotline enough for younger readers (8-11 years old) to follow and enjoy the story adequately.
