Praise for Watch This Space 2: In the Pink

“Thompson, who authored the very popular The Floods series, has put a magnifying glass onto some of the worst elements of human behaviour in this book – but in a humorous poke-fun-at-ourselves way ... The writing is fluid, witty and funny, and will appeal to young readers, while his whacky cartoon illustrations add to the book’s appeal.”

Jane Carstens, Reading Time
