'I laughed out loud!'

Learning Officer, Swaffham Museum

'There are travel guides to Norfolk and there are children's guides to Norfolk - now there's a whole new take on the idea courtesy of 10-year-old 'Jim' and his hilarious month-by-month account of a year of family outings...

And it's not hard to see how this would appeal to younger readers; they'll be hooked by the humour while learning more about the county - even the adults will, I suspect, pick up a thing or two they didn't know.' 
Eastern Daily Press 16.06.2012

'...seen through the eyes of 10-year-old Jim the county has never seemed so exciting. The By-Mistake Guide to Norfolk is a travel book with a difference, and while it might be aimed at 8-12 year-olds, parents will love it just as much as their kids....Best of all for mum and dad, it's a clever way of getting children excited about exploring outdoors.' 
Norfolk Magazine July 2012

'Written from the point of view of ten year old boy, Jim, it is a delightful diary....With his Mum, Dad, sisters and Gran in tow, his hilarious adventures are captured in his own words accompanied by some very funny hand drawn sketches that will make you laugh out loud.'
North Norfolk Living Early Summer 2012

 'Once you've got hold of a copy of
The By-Mistake Guide to Norfolk
 you can follow in my footsteps as I explore spooky castles, parping windmills, and smelly bogs. 

And I don’t just mean in your imagination. 

 You can actually visit these places  and get pooed on by a knot, see a ghost, and swim with seals, just like me!'
