And there's always a place in children's reading for that' Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times book of the week 'A terrific adventure in which the writing and the invention burst into life' Jan Mark, Times Educational Supplement 'Ian Ogilvy's first novel for children is a triumph, a hugely inventive Dahl-esque adventure in which the pace never flags and the reader's attention never allowed to wander' Books for Keepsshow more
