Praise for THERE'S A BUG ON MY ARM:"Similar to his previous work, this David Mackintosh book is witty and sharp with a distinctive style" BookTrust"Uniquely and wonderfully unsettled illustrations, which enhance this relatable story for kids"Praise for WHAT'S UP MUMU?:"David Mackintosh is one of my favourite author/illustrators, and he is hitting a new peak with this book. It's stunningly beautiful and simple." - Oliver JeffersPraise for THE FRANK SHOW:"The story delivers a positive message with subversive wit and charm" - The Irish Times"Mackintosh's anarchic illustrations are hilarious but there's a serious point about how much the older generation has to offer children, including loads of fun." - The HeraldPraise for MARSHALL ARMSTRONG IS NEW TO OUR SCHOOL:"Utterly unpredictable from one page to the next, this is a seriously funny book." - The Independent on Sunday"I think this book is fantastic because I can read it myself and I love the pictures and the way it looks. The story is really, really good and fantastic because it's strange and weird." - child's review on the Guardian's children's book site.
