PRAISE FOR PUCKER POWER:
‘The play with words is most appealing to young readers and adds an element of fun to the reading … This is a fantastic book, and would be great as a class novel.’ – Inis magazine
‘The book is full of slap-stick comedy and role reversals as well as farcical situations and funny stereotypes – not forgetting a clever homage to Cruella De Vil. The books are accompanied by a fun and well thought-out website.’ – Books for Keeps, July 2015
Kevin Stevens is the author of six novels for adults, young adults and children. His first book for young children, The Powers, was chosen for the Dublin UNESCO Citywide Read and was hugely successful. Kevin also contributes regularly to The Irish Times and Dublin Review of Books.
