Reviews

What I relish in particular is the swiftness of the telling, the vigour with which brilliant moments of perception seem to be improvised in the sheer delight of the onward rush of the story -- Philip Pullman * Guardian *
A writer of wild humour and unrestrained imagination * Oxford Companion to Children's Literature *
A consummate story teller * The Times *
This is a racy tale with plenty of disgusting details -- Orna Mulcahy * The Irish Times *
