Reviews for ‘The Phlunk’

a lot more style and panache than your average picture book. As a whole it’s an unusual and pleasantly refreshing package.


I read it to a lovely bunch during one of our story-time sessions … The verdict? I am very happy to say that it was a huge hit. The children loved the Phlunk himself and enjoyed the story too. Needless to say, we will be stocking .
