"I volunteered to read the Pie Rats novels to see in what context we could use them before Cameron's visit. I am known here as a "bookworm", reading anything and everything, and I can honestly say I have enjoyed Cameron's books as much as I enjoy a Matthew Reilly, a Nicholas Sparks or a John Grisham. I am very impressed with Cameron's writing, (especially enjoying the humorous parts) and I love the illustrations. " Teacher, Gooburrum State School.
