`This is a great book for anyone who likes books about Dutch werewolves, vegetarian piranhas, witches as maths teachers, crazy street names and...jam! It's funny. If you were actually in the book it would be scary but if you're reading you just want to know what's going to happen. It's like the author is talking to you, as well as writing the book. If there were more Huggabie Falls books I would definitely get them.' * Freya (age 9) * `Adem Cece's The Extremely Weird Thing That Happened in Huggabie Falls is an engaging book that takes you through lots of funny twists as you explore the world of Kipp Kindle, Tobias Treachery and Cymphany Chan. It's a mind-blowing tale, as strange things happen all the time. Adam wrote an amusingly hysterical story that you will just want to keep reading.' * Zara (age 10) * `This book is very interesting and fun to read because you never know what will happen next and there are surprises around every corner! I think Adam Cece had great ideas that he turned it into a great book!' * Emma (age 10) * 'Wonderfully weird and lots of fun!' * Andy Griffiths *
