REVIEWS

 

 “Donovan Bixley writes as well as he draws, and Monkey Boy is both gloriously funny and gleefully disgusting. Young Jimmy is a powder monkey, the lowliest member of Nelson’s navy, and the indomitable hero of this rollicking ocean-going yarn. Only readers brave enough to face nausea, ghosts, monsters, bullies and sea battles should sign on for this exciting voyage in HMS Fury.”                                                            

 ––Trevor Agnew, Children’s book reviewer
