This little book is hands-down one of the best things I've read. I love Fowey, you love Fowey, surely we all love Fowey? Sadly not and as we all know, people like nothing more these days than to take to the internet to explain precisely why it is that they don't like something and therefore nobody else should either. Gretchen's masterful and incredibly detailed pen and ink illustrations capture a selection of actual real reviews in ways that the original authors possibly didn't quite anticipate (even better when there's a typo in the review). There's a healthy sprinkling of Gretchen's trademark seagulls adding their thoughts throughout, this is a hilarious gift for any fan of Fowey. 

The book also includes an extra treat in the form of Gretchen's simple guide to walking in Fowey so don't forget to check the inside back cover. 

Also, at the time of writing (June 2022), Gretchen's illustrations are adorning Fowey's Pretty Bus Stop, very much worth a visit if you are in the area.
