Barry Jonsberg's first vel is an absolute riot. As hilarious as it is poignant, The Whole Business with Kiffo and the Pitbull should be on every year-10 syllabus in the country. If this book doesn't make them want to read, thing will.' - The Age'Magnificent! Loved it! Laughed, srted, and snickered maniacally on the subway all through it. It's taking great restraint t to run down the hall and read bits aloud to people' - Nancy Siscoe, Kpf USA'Jonsberg's writing is fresh and funny, and bites with fierce teenage realism.' - Children's Bookseller + Publisher, April 2004
