  • A hypnotic, mystical tale of street children... Ultimately, this is a wonderful book about the importance of stories, its own sheer quality providing its best argument

    John Harding, Daily Mail
  • Nelio's story is unfurled with pace and drama... Mankell writes eloquently of the realities of poverty and violence without becoming sugary or expert craftsman

  • A wonderful, lyrical is hard to leave Nelio at the end

  • This is a deeply affecting read, one of those rare novels whose taste lingers for days afterwards

    Barry Didcock, Sunday Herald
  • An elegant story about storytelling

    Tristan Quinn, Literary Review
