Review quote

"* "Steeped in as much symbolism as you dare extract... A fascinating book that will afford hours of imaginative unravelling." The Guardian * "A haunting, strange story with the feel of a Brothers Grimm tale. It will say a great deal to any child with brothers or sisters, and the pictures are - naturally - quite superb." Practical Parenting"
