Rachel Flynn’s Sacked! is for the eight-to ten-year-old market, the same audience that J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books are tapping. It’s an interesting stage when everything from cereal packets to Dad’s car manual demands to be read.
Sacked! explores a clever absurdity with tongue-in-cheek, where the adult is likely to see the joke more than the child.
