'It was nice to see Keeley try something a little bit different here. Instead of fantastical tales of the unexpected we've seen from him before, he's tapped into slices of real life in The Dinner Club and Other Stories. These realistic tales are just as much fun as the surreal ones and they reveal that everyday stuff contains just as rich a vein of humour as wild imagination. But it's not all newness. Familiar characters return to entertain readers, including my personal favourite duo, Liam and Justin. Those two never fail to make me laugh. Give The Dinner Club and Other Stories a try. You'll enjoy it. I promise.'
The Bookbag

On The (Fairly) Magic Show and Other Stories:
“Funny and beautifully-observed set of short stories for middle readers. They've all got a twist in the tale and will be enjoyed by child, parent and teacher alike.”
Jill Murphy, The Bookbag

"Charming, well written stories for middle readers, set in a contemporary world of school and friendships that will be familiar to most primary school children. These are realistic situations, and pleasing stories which entertain and amuse."
