Comments from Australian booksellers:
“The Very hungry Bum delights both young and old. People buy a copy as a gift, decide to keep it, and have to buy another one."
Celia at Shorties, Newtown NSW.
“The Very Hungry Bum literally runs out of our stores on its skinny little bum legs! It’s an all age winner. We really do sell out in a couple of days.”
Lindy-Lou Bateman, Manager Merchandise, Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart, Tasmania.
“The Very Hungry Bum hit our Top 10 for 2012 – like you know, right up the top.”
Michelle Delle Vergin, BOOKtique, Merimbula NSW.
“Claudia Rowe's "The Very Hungry Bum" and "Bum Magic" have been a huge hits in our shop as a quirky gift and as a perfect impulse buy at our counter. I mean, who doesn't pick up a book with BUM in the title?"
Christopher Currie, Avid Reader Stock Buyer, Brisbane QLD
“We have had incredible successes with sales of The Very Hungry Bum and Bum Magic. Customers love these and often return to buy more for their friends.”
Susie at Brunswick Bound, Brunswick VIC
