• "A powerful read . . . A raw and sombre struggle for survival, suffused with a vivid evocation of nature"

    The Bookseller
  • "A darkly atmospheric thriller with a cast of murderous wild animals... the rich dark feel of the descriptive writing is magnificently reflected in the linear rhythms and velvety, crepuscular tones of Andrew Davidson's wood engravings"

  • "For his insights into nature and his vivid descriptions of them, Dick King-Smith is an exceptional writer. In the new, more sober voice of Godhanger, he shows just what a good storyteller and writer he is"

    Julia Eccleshare, Books for Keeps
  • "Beautifully illustrated . . . The reader is left with greater knowledge of nature as well as the satisfaction of a really good read"
