    Review quote
    "A thrilling masterwork on stories that become real" -- Amanda Craig The Times "It has the feel of a classic fairy tale. It's the most elegantly constructed, chilling story that makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck" Jacqueline Wilson "Deeply satisfying and deserves to become a classic" TES "Exciting, scary, romantic and deliciously readable" Guardian "It is Pullman's talent for creating an atmospheric mood and tugging at your emotions to add pace and suspense that really keeps you entranced" Junior
