Review:

'...devilishly funny...the characters burst off the page, full of life. Laughing with Hobbs is like eating cake for breakfast: such a naughty, delicious pleasure.'Weekend Australian, 24-25 February 2007'Lock up the teachers. Remove all sharp objects. The Freaks are back!...so delightfully wicked, it's almost impossible not to cheer them on. Don't make me choose between 4F for Freaksand Freaks Ahoy!because they're both freaking wonderful.'Sunday Age, 4 March 2007 'Weird, wonderful and seriously warped.'Magpies, Vol 22:1, March 2007
