Praise for Ickyfoodia: The Ultimate Guide to Disgusting Food

“...it is the perfect book to just pick up, flick to a random page and read something funny. this aspect would appeal to readers who are struggling to find books they want to read front to back, and also those who find it hard to engage and relate to (an) entire story.”
