  • "A fast-paced and quirky magical tale . . . Bell writes with great verve and imagination"

    Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
  • "The Crooked Sixpence moves at the speed of magic . . . peeling away the mundane surface of the world to reveal something richer and deeper. Bell's world is part Tim Burton, part J.K. Rowling . . . This is a terrific debut"

    Soman Chainani, author of THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL
  • "This is a fast-paced and exciting adventure, featuring a Victorian-style otherworld, that will appeal to fans of the Harry Potter and Chrestomanci series . . . the book will appeal to both girls and boys. This is an extremely enjoyable read and a well-deserving addition to the magical fantasy genre"
