This book is extremely silly and a guaranteed good laugh for anyone aged about two and up. Dwayne and Jane-o want to see the volcano… they’ll catch a plane-o and climb down a chain-o… their enthusiasm is not in doubt but what will happen when they get there?
Well, the bright and engaging pictures tell the epic story of how friends and followers join them on their quest, including Roger the incredible colour changing cat and Dr Eyjafjallajökull. There are good in-jokes for adults as well as children, but they are not allowed to get in the way of a very funny story to read aloud. Fans of Stanton’s Mr Gum series will recognise the humour.
I treated the character list at the end as a Where’s Wally style list of folks to go back and find in the pictures, giving the book a good spin for older children. Also it was full of bonus jokes. This book is a proper treat.
