David Lee Stone is a wonderfully mad new talent to watch. He has a truly original comic voice and you won't forget his hysterically hopeless (rather than heroic) characters in a hurry! - Wendy Cooling
Easy to read and consistently amusing in the wry Terry Pratchett/Douglas Adams style. - The School Librarian
many comical elements and a touch of Mervyn Peake - The Children's Bookseller
[The Yowler Foul-up] is a zippy, highly efficient read with a natural, unforced wit and a matter-of-fact heartlessness that never seems mean-spirited. - SFX Magazine
