Reviews

  • In this rather ebullient and lovely new novel by Michel Faber ... older children and fully-grown adults will certainly find much to relish in it

    THE SCOTSMAN
  • Michel Faber never fails to tell his story with wit, intelligence and charm

    SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
  • Part affectionate homage, part exhuberant fan fiction, YA readers will love it, but Faber's brio and bubbly ingenuity will delight adult readers too

    DAILY MAIL
  • Dazzling

    INDEPENDENT
  • A firecracker of a novel

    STUART KELLY, EDINBURGH LITERARY FESTIVAL 2020
  • If ever a book like this was needed, it is now. Dhikilo is a splendid heroine for our time: She stands for kindness, honesty and humanity. Her triumph will have readers rejoicing

    DIANE SETTERFIELD
  • Testament to his storytelling gift and to the charm and the warmth of his writing

    TELEGRAPH
  • The deadpan style makes this more funny than scary. Faber's acknowledged debt to James Thurber's O is clear. It's very enjoyable
