Reviews

'A crazily fantastic story with loads of mad and hilarious moments.' -- Independent on Sunday 'It does what we hope JK Rowling would do: it makes everything you wish for come true, including the unlikeliest of outcomes.' -- Sunday Times 'Hilary McKay's wittily observed portrayals of family life are full of warmth, vitality and irrepressible good humour.' -- Kate Agnew, The Guardian 'just the sort of crazy family you ache to be a part of.' -- The Good Book Guide 'it's wonderful to have more stories about the engaging and uncommon Casson family!' -- Parents Express '... we are so fond of this fresh, funny, foolish, wise, real family.' -- The Horn Book Magazine '... as wild and endearing as ever ... Another charmer for Casson fans.' -- Booklist '... touching and hiarious. Beautifully crafted descriptive language makes this offering a real gem.' -- School Library Journal 'McKay has a genius for domestic comedy.' -- The Sunday Times 'Hilary McKay's strength lies in her understanding of young people and her ability to evoke them very simply.' -- The Guardian 'Warm, witty and wise, with unfeasibly broad appeal and proven anti-depressive properties, i would give this book to 9-year olds, teenagers and their parents.' -- Sunday Telegraph '... hugely entertaining story effortlessly recreates a tightly knit world, imbued with a strong sense of belonging - a slice of childhood so multi-layered, touching and real that there's something for every child reader to identify with and savour. Here's a book that truly proves the joys to be had from reading.' -- Books for Keeps 'stylishly written, acutely observed, light-headed and often very funny. At times, it's also incredibly touching and insightful, particularly when dealing with the complexities of family life ... quality writing for children.' -- School Librarian
