PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
'This graphic novel is hilariously funny. Short in length, it will be devoured by newly independent and emerging readers ... Perfect for school and public libraries.' Magpies
'James Foley's unique characters, crazy situations and unusual adventures engage the young reader. His cartoons capture the grossness of the girl's journey and of course their special re-entry into the real world.' ReadPlus
'Primary-aged readers will love this third instalment in Foley’s hilarious S. Tinker Inc. series of graphic novels ... Adventure, young scientists, endless fart jokes, tiny attack bots, and a comic book format – this book has it all!' Writing WA
'Farting babies and graphic novels are surefire ways into a primary reader's heart. While there are plenty of humorous and silly bits in Gastronauts, there are also lessons in technology and biology to be gleaned.' Mums at the Table
'Gastronauts is one of the best books I have ever read ... One of the best things about this book is definitely the illustrations because they are detailed and realistic.' Benjamin Rask, age 12, Herald Sun
