Reviews

  • Glorious. There is such personal and political outrage about the world. But what makes it feel like a Real Story, one that will be found and enjoyed and dreamed about for years to come, is Dhikilo, a fabulous heroine and a real person on the page. Her adventure and bravery as she attempts to restore a missing letter to the world is beautifully written and delightfully told. I loved it

    NEIL GAIMAN
  • 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
