به عنوان اولین کتاب خارج از سری آقای گام از این نویسنده می ترسیدم که نکند تمام هنرش را در آقای گام مصرف کرده باشد و این یک کتاب لوس و بی مزه باشد مثل بقیه ی کتابهای کودک!ولی خوشبختانه اینطور نشد و این هم کتاب خیلی خوب و جذابی بود و از یک جهت از آقای گام هم شاید بهتر باشد،چون شوخی های این کتاب را بچه های کوچک تر هم می توانند درک کنند ولی نوع طنز آقای گام کمی متفاوت است.
به هرحال هم برای من ِ بزرگسال و هم برادر خردسالم کتاب دوست داشتنی ای بود.

Not quite as sophiscated as the Mr Gum series of books but I like the way the plotline culiminates bringing together all the threads together at the end. Imaginative and with an off beat sense of humour.

I thought this book was good, it had comedy feel. I enjoyed reading it as it had very funny features - e.g. Matthew's belief that he can turn himself into a fly!! LOL!
