Bookbag describes BIG BIG SECRETS as an "easy-to-read, action-packed fantasy" with "a lot of fun, childish humour", "definitely worth a look" for "children between about 8 and 12". A very farcical feel to it" especially "the final chase scenes which felt exciting and fun".
My favourite Amazon review reads: "A story that 10-13 year olds will love - written with verve and pace that will carry readers along on a rollercoaster of catastrophes unwittingly set in motion by an ambitious and likeable science student. It is narrated by the appealing Annie, who finds herself with the cantankerous science teacher in the palm of her hand, literally! It is full of kid friendly humour as she attempts to deal with the tiny teacher, such as providing him with the only clothing she has that will fit him - a pink and orange Barbie outfit. It is a very accessible book, which at the same time offers a substantial and sustained read. I really recommend it."
