Reviews

  • "Pete Johnson's novel is funny and light but the humour disguises real emotional truth and depth . . . It offers some very funny and pertinent home truths for parents too"

    Guardian
  • "A funny, positive and engaging exploration of a modern dilemma from a sure-footed storyteller"

    Carousel
  • "Children are often the victims when a marriage falters or fails and in Rescuing Dad, Pete Johnson illuminates this distressing reality with the perception humour which is a trademark of his work . . . The events of Joe's birthday are as fine a piece of slapstick comedy as I have read"

    Books for Keeps
  • "Pete Johnson has succeeded in presenting a sensitive subject in a light-hearted way without detracting from its seriousness"
