James McEwan Guest Editor said "My real name is Bogg - I was in stitches with laughter. I love the way you have captured our irrational childhood fears in this delightful story.

Kate Smart Guest Editor said "matchmaking! - I hope I won't spoil this for readers too much by suggesting a possible romance between your toilet monster and Bill Kirton's Stanley? I think they'd make a lovely couple!! enjoyed this very much, thank you!"
