At times Harvey seems to distil the essence of the Australian bush...Here is a treasure of unfailing pleasure reassurance that Australia does still produce great comic and narrative art.' Maurice Saxby, MagpiesVol 20 No 5 Nov 2005'...hilariously illustrated you can spend hours spotting every comical event that the artist has so skillfully included.' AB&PSept 2005
