"This book is laugh-out-loud funny. It would make a wonderful read-aloud for teachers and is an easy read for less able readers. Excellent, enduring ... "
Susan Miller, ResourceLinks.ca

Margaret Poole, Atlantic Books Today, Dec. 2006.
 

"Bubba Begonia, You'll Be Sorry! has everything kids in this age group could want - funny characters with silly names, a "gross" situation and a fast-moving plot. ... Highly Recommended!"

Having read Gerry's first book, Bubba Begonia You'll Be Sorry, and hearing him read aloud from it at a meeting for teacher-librarians, I knew it would be the perfect book to recommend to the Grade 3 teachers at my school when they came looking for read-aloud suggestions from me in September. First one teacher, then the other read it aloud to their classes. The students LOVED it. The well-developed and zany characters with their very individual voices and Bubba's finger-up-his-nose voice had them hooked. I couldn't keep the books on the shelves. What a way to kickstart a year of reading!
