This is a hilarious story - you won' believe it either, when you see what befalls Archie. All he did was go out to post a letter - and a piano rolls down the hill - then a car rolls out of control - and gets buried in a heap of gravel... all this in the first few pages, so you can get an idea of the mayhem in store. And that's just Monday, and the reader is in for a full week of hilarious adventures, all illustrated with a light touch and great humour. - Parents in Touch
A whole load of unbelievable and outrageously funny things happen to Archie in the course of a week in this entertaining book for independent early readers. - Oxford Times
It's reasonable, uncomplicated, and - in Norriss' hands - makes for a very entertaining book. It would be easy, given the premise, for the author to go completely overboard and introduce aliens, magic; and zombies; but he takes the sensible course of sticking to the believable but highly unlikely...My own chidren loved the story...I loved it too - it's funny, clever, and well-written. - Awfully Big Reviews
