Reviews

'A genuinely funny comedy - with a Pratchettian mix of gusto and warmth...This may be Mal Peet's first book for grownups, but it is an assured, even virtuoso, performance fully deserving that most prestigious of accolades - a rave review in the Guardian.' - The Guardian; 'The Murdstone Trilogy has instantly become one of my favourite books - right up there with Terry Pratchett and The Princess Bride for fantasy comedy. The writing is sublime and the humour is lacerating. I loved every warped sentence.' - Eoin Colfer; 'I enjoyed this novel hugely. It had a fat, throbbing vein of dark hilarity running right through the middle, with skewered literary personages shrieking and wittering either side. It's a complete nutty fantasy, and yet there's enough weird truth in it to really worry any writer - oh, okay, any reader - who picks it up. If you've ever wondered what the heck writers do all day, The Murdstone Trilogy will give you a good idea - bwahaha - ' - Margo Lanagan; 'Read it whatever your age and find yourself laughing pretty well at every page - it really is that good.' - The Independent; 'Comic gold...deliciously funny, and the story-within-a-story is a glorious send-up of the genre'. - Financial Times; '[Murdstone and Pocket are] expertly drawn... A refreshing and absorbing change of pace.' - SFX Magazine
