"A charming fantasy novel... Excellent illustrations complement this very readable story which would be great for children from 8-11 years old." School Library Association on Waking Merlin (ISBN:1-84428-964-8) "Well-paced and written with verve and humour, with friendly, black-and-white illustrations adding to its charm. A further bonus is that the story might just intrigue young readers to find out more about Arthurian legends." Books for Keeps on Waking Merlin"
