Reviews

"An absorbing, powerful and uplifting story" * Booktrust * "It is hugely to Davies's credit that she makes these characters live such vibrant lives in the minds of her young readers . . . The action in the narrative is unflagging and fast-paced. The language is convincing . . . I would like to see this book adopted as a primary class text" -- Rebecca Butler * Armadillo Magazine * "Heartwarming . . . so far removed from anything children here would experience and gives so much to think and talk about, as well as being a page-turning story to boot" * The School Librarian *
