    Sunday Telegraph
  • Joan Aiken is the best contemporary writer of historical-fantasy we have - and I would not make such a generalisation lightly. This is a quite exceptional book.

    Susan Hill
  • Altogther an invigorating book, in which the wit and nonsense make such a sparkling fizz together that it is hard to tell one from the other

    Times Literary Supplement
  • A writer of wild humour
