Reviews

Anne Fine's acerbic take on life often assumes a level of sophistication in her young readers. Insights into the emotional lives of grown ups can appeal to children and the misunderstandings that surround Harry and Tristram's trip create comic situations that make the readers, for once, the knowing ones -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times *
Family relationships come under close scrutiny in this book, which is ideal for the summer holidays * The Bookseller *
A lively, witty, rain-drenched tale full of big beards, from one of our best children's writers -- Daniel Hahn * Independent on Sunday *
This is a most enjoyable book -- Mary Arrigan * Irish Examiner *
This is Anne Fine at her hilarious best -- Wendy Cooling * Child Education *
