  • Burningham's a dab hand at leaving a story hanging in mid-air, and, a s ever, this moving and poetic hymn to the power of imagination invites and rewards any amount of personal interpretation

    Joanna Carey, Guardian
  • The book has its moments of suspense and an engagingly suggestive ending, but best of all is the succinct, expressive, sketchy style, which communicates emotions, characters, settings and atmosphere with great precision

    Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times
  • Burningham's story taps into the limitless realm of a child's imagination. It's a classic tale from one of the best around

    Damian Kelleher, Metro Life
  • The story has a strong appeal because it is a fantasy that is true to reality: everyone has a kind of magic bed

    Jane Doonan, TES
  • An ideal showcast for what Burningham does best: blending domestic detail with expressionistic emotion and scale

    Sally Williams, Independent
