"The sense of all-out fun and humour that you get from this book is a clear marker of a book written purely to entertain" (Armadillo Magazine)
"Rich in detail and colour, you'll want to go back again and again over every page to see what you missed the first and second time around . . . It's pacy, it's funny and it deserves a place on your shelves" (Bear Alley)
"It's a deliberately rambling, manic burst of comic energy across it's busy and brightly coloured pages. Lots and lots of fun, lots of silly gags . . . a manic, full on adventure serial, heavy on the laughs and with some very nice, suitably kinetic artwork" (Richard Bruton Forbidden Planet Blog)
"Filled with unique characters, belly-laughing jokes and fantastic illustrations this is an adventure for any crime-busting, comic-loving fan" (Scribbler)
"The Etherington Brothers have crafted a fun and action packed story. The story is filled so many memorable characters and great moments. Sid and Rivet make a great team. You never know what is coming next. 9/10" (Comic Buzz)

We bought ** Monkey Nuts ** and my 10 and 8 year old boys fought fiercely over who was to read the book first. It had to be withdrawn until they had reached a happy agreement and finally today they read it, as did we.
Bearing in mind that we have an awful lot of books of all types in our house, including towers of Beanos, Dandys, and related annuals, all the Tintins, Asterix', and countless other graphic novels owned by children and parents....My 8 year old thought it is 'The best book I have ever read' and has asked for the next one, yet to be published, for his birthday several times an hour since. My 10 year old has also been asking for the next one for his birthday and has read it at least 4 times today.
I was very impressed by the superior creative qualities of Robin's imagination and Lorenzo's illustrations. Their ideas have created an exciting new world where anything can happen.
A superb book...We are 4 new Etherington converts ranging in age from 8 to 50 and will be following their publications closely from now on.
Illustrations are true masterpieces.. each & everyone so imaginative & stunningly drawn.
A very talented duo of Bros!!
Recommend this to so many peeps of different ages.. even my 3 year old is loving the images!
Published well and the book is nicely put together and feels very well made.. really lovely quality!
All round brilliant!
as i have read Malcom Magic i can say the pure craziness of these boys has not died down at all
all of the funny moments are still there and the "i have no idea where this plot is going but it certainly is a fun ride" is still there.
i love that Malcom pops up alot in it also ^_^
i couldn't put it down so its all read and now I'm forcing it on other people to read
now to wait for the next one
Bring on Volume 2
