  • "Unforgettable to the last full stop. One of the great classics"

    Michael Morpurgo, Children's Laureate
  • "Janusz Korczak is an important writer... His message is still relevant today, that children matter; indeed that they should be a priority in our culture, because it's only with a child's imagination that grown-ups can begin to conceive a better world"

    Yann Martel, author of 'Life of Pi'
  • "Absolutely wonderful. A gripping and classic entertainment from start to shocking finish. Definitely a book for all ages"

    Matt Haig, author of 'The Last Family in England'
  • "The spirit of Korczak, living on, could make a better world for all humans"

    Publisher's Weekly
  • "Droll and melancholy, wry and touching, King Matt is a fable that offers a fierce, truthful picture of children struggling to make sense of grown-up nonsense... This small masterpiece is a rare tribute to the psychological depth and marvellous workings of a child's heart and mind"

    Maurice Sendak, author of 'Where the Wild Things Are'
