Reviews

"Expect goose bumps from this original story, which suggests that nostalgia is crucial - so long as you don't let it stall you. Big ideas for this age group, but told in a simple, memorable way. Almond and Pinfold give each other just the right amount of room to breathe, and it's dam good." * The Times, Children's Book of the Week *
"This is, to be sure, a literary and art-led children's book, but one with great depth, and the fact that it captures a true story will be of interest to all." * BookTrust *
"A poignant collaboration [...]" * The Guardian *
"Both brooding and enchanting..." * The Financial Times *
"It can be read to your child in five minutes, but it's likely to leave them pondering for days." * The Big Issue *
"Mesmerising. Classic Almond territory." * Angels and Urchins *
"A book to pore over and return to again and again." * Carousel Christmas Guide 2018 *
"The artwork is remarkable - each page full of atmosphere and deep emotion. A triumph." * The Irish Independent *
"This is a wonderful story about man and his environment, how we remember, and how we adapt to change." * The School Librarian *
