A genuine tonic. So clever, so funny and so refreshingly different - Ruth Jones
Genuinely unputdownable books are rare. This is one. A brilliant, original comedy. - DAILY MAIL
I have a feeling Caroline Hulse might be a genius
A very funny writer and a wonderfully compassionate observer of human frailty
A Caroline Hulse book is a reading highlight of my year
Hilarious and brilliant and clever in that way only Caroline knows how to be - Lucy Vine
Always such a treat to read a Caroline Hulse novel! I loved The Adults and Like A House On Fire, but I think this is my fave of them all. Quirky, original and charming, with plenty of school years nostalgia. I could not love Fiona more. - The Unmumsy Mum
All the Fun of the Fair is an absolute JOY. Funny, clever, and with its mid-90s setting, brilliantly nostalgic. The hilarious, beleaguered protagonist, Fiona Larson, is the new Adrian Mole. Though she'd probably say Adrian had it easy, being a boy and all... - Nicola Mostyn
