Review quote

One of the reasons this humane and carefully crafted book is so readable is that the author celebrates ordinariness and childishness even as he chronicles terrible cruelty. But prepare for shock and tears. -- Nicolette Jones (on Then, children's book of the week) Sunday Times Haunting ... dangerous and desperate, but also full of courage and hope. Guardian on Once [Morris Gleitzman] has accomplished something extraordinary. Meg Rosoff
