4.5 stars. ‘A quirky mystery full of fantastical science’ – Funday, Sunday Telegraph – Sandy Fussell.


‘Quark’s Academy is a rollicking read. The science is loopy and exaggerated, which makes the story entertaining and unpredictable. The plot hinges on the rich imagination of children – a sustainable resource if ever there was one. Whether or not they’re interested in science, readers between eight and 12 will have fun with this book’.—Adelaide Advertiser
