Praise for Abarat: 'Abarat is more than just a new and major contender. It is (like his earlier book, The Thief of Always) full of a level of beautiful terror that children are still just able to bear.' Independent 'Always creating and always pushing into the furthest reaches of the human mind, he is an artist in every sense of the word. He is the great imaginer of our time.' Quentin Tarantino 'Abarat is a sumptuous and lovely thing.' Guardian
