Peer & Press Reviews

Poison for Breakfast is a book to savour.  Every sentence is perfectly balanced to surprise, delight, intrigue and, yes, bewilder the reader.  A book about impending death which captures the simple, but profound, joys of being alive.  I am a long-time Lemony Snicket fan and this is his best yet.

Sarah Hagger-Holt, author of Nothing Ever Happens Here

Witty, clever and unsettling – it’s Lemony Snicket at his finest, and bright minds that love dark delights will gobble it right up.

Rachel Delahaye, author of Mort the Meek

Poison for Breakfast is a murder mystery like no other, which will bewilder and beguile both children and adults alike.  It’ll have you questioning everything – from whether or not you can outrun death, to even bigger questions such as whether or not you are choosing the most respectable method to cook your eggs each morning.

Hana Tooke, author of The Unadoptables
