What the Critics Say

"Philip Reeve is a class act, a marvellously original creator of intelligent and entertaining fictions." (The Guardian)
"You know you are in the hands of a master storyteller when a dangerous yet frivolous fantasy world is brought to life with such imagination that it not only entertains and amuses - it actually seems real." (The Telegraph)
