Here's a review by OK Comics customer Joshua, age 8.
"I loved the whole book. The Kappa story was my favourite.
I like how the art is sometimes dark, and sometimes light.
The animals are crazy cool.
I like the animals, because sometimes they're happy, sometimes they're mad and sometimes they're at war.
It was really good. I would like to read all of the books.
