Richard Stubbs from ABC 774 Afternoons said, “It’s such a good book. So beautifully written. In a style that maintains itself. It’s really distinctive… the book’s great, really readable. The book will drag you in because… its very dense writing. There’s lots of stuff on the page. There’s lots of beautiful descriptions. You need to read the book.” https://soundcloud.com/stephen-briggs-author/stephen-briggs-abc774
"Warm and whimsical... Briggs' memoir is a LAUGH OUT LOUD coming of age story." William Yeoman The West Australian.
"I have known Steve for over 25 years. He is a natural storyteller and of the funniest people I know. Although I wish I hadn't seen him naked. That's a long story that involves Karaoke." Judith Lucy.
"Stephen has brilliantly captured the frontier life of the Pilbara in the 70s in his new memoir “The Boy Who Could Tickle Clouds”. It’s a great read that provides a snapshot of an earlier time here in the North West." Alex Hyman ABC North West.
"Benny Hill has a LOT to answer for..." Jean Briggs (Stephen's mum)
