"One of the best Edge Chronicles books yet" Independent on Sunday "Visual literacy is a phrase generally applied to the interpretation of pictures but it does seem that here are both aspects perfectly conjoined" The School Librarian "The words and pictures are as imaginatively creative as ever in this tenth book" Sainsbury's Magazine "A highly recommended must-read set of short stories for fans old and new" writeaway.org.uk
