Review quote

"A thrilling, all too rare tale of a kind which seems itself to be an endangered species for this age-group" TES "A colourful and delightful story with a satisfying storyline that moves at pace ... A book that children will pore over and discover something fresh each time they return to it" Children's Books of the Year 1994 "Stunning panaromic illustrations" Young Book Trust 100 Best Books 1996 "A rip-roaring yarn ... the stuff of a master storyteller weaving an epic - it's not just the paper he paints, but also our imaginations" Books for Keeps "This is a glorious picture book that moves at a fast pace and has the reader engaged from the first page" -- Louise Ellis-Barrett
