Editorial Reviews

"Brilliant, fascinating and intriguing. Historical fiction at its most magnificent." Jackie French"Handled with Morpurgo's usual zip and feeling." The Sunday Times"Has the feel of a classic already: quality storytelling." The Irish Times"Gripping stuff, the only snag is that the reader is likely to be so engrossed that all hopes of convivial company for Christmas will have to be abandoned until they've finished the last chapter." Evening Echo (Ireland)
