Review quote

'One of the most original and beautiful stories' * Teach Primary * 'A lyrical, emotion-packed story... stunning debut novel' * Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Evening Post * 'The River Singers was so gripping that it was nearly impossible to put down. Five stars from me.' * By Kids for kids review, the Guardian online * 'The book was amazing - it was the best book that I have ever read. I felt like I was in the book. My eyes would just not stop reading. I will recommend it to lots of people.' * Lulu, age 9 * 'This book became one of my favourites. I was worried what Sylvan, his brothers and sisters would do next! There was a lot of danger in their long journey. I couldn't wait to turn over the next page because I was full of excitement.' * Momo, age 8 * 'With echoes of The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame and Watership Down this is a wonderful story with a classic, traditional feel . . . An utterly lovely book and highly recommended.' * The Bookbag * 'Just the sort of book I would have loved to have picked up as a child. I love the way Tom weaves in the natural history of the riverbank with a fast paced adventure.' * Gill Lewis, author of Sky Hawk * 'A hymn to nature, written with compassion and flair.' * Lauren St John, author of The White Giraffe *show more
