Review:

A travel book with a difference. Engagingly written and amusingly illustrated in comic book-style format, it combines a rollicking backpacker's adventure tale in the heart of Southeast Asia's disappearing jungles with an increasingly serious environmental message. --South China Morning Post
This book is a unique approach to share stories of disappearing plants, animals, lands and waters local people need to survive. A good blend of a tourist rough guide, conservation notes and a comic book. A good treat for eyes and mind. --Ahmad Fuadi, Director of Communications, The Nature Conservancy Indonesia
Encouraging anyone to have an interest in exploration and the natural world can never be a bad thing, so Bumbling Through Borneo, which is set to entertain while imparting information, is a welcome blend of narrative with an underlying conservation message ... the underlying message is excellent -- adventure mixed with fact and just thing to hook a youngster into wanting to explore the world. --Descent Magazine
