Editorial Reviews

".Her hallmarks include laugh-aloud humour, plenty of magic and imaginative array of alternate worlds. Yet, at the same time, a great seriousness is present in all of her novels, a sense of urgency that links Jones's most outrageous plots to her readers' hopes and fears."Publishers Weekly"Truly magical - guaranteed to leave you gasping - even hotter than Potter"The Bookseller"Diana Wynne Jones could teach Stephen King and JK Rowling a thing or two . [she] has a skill for inserting just the right amount of detail in her written words, leaving you satiated but not stuffed." SFX
