Reviews

BACKLIST REVIEWS: 'Almond manages to make a work of art out of the simplest words.' -- Amanda Craig, The Times 'a master novelist' -- Independent 'There really is nobody quite like Almond writing in children's or adults' fiction today.' -- The Times 'a writer of subtle, page-turning and daring exactness.' -- Times Educational Supplement 'David Almond's novels all have a unique, mystical thread running through them. He weaves a story web, spiderlike, that holds the reader spellbound while he spins new though-threads on universal themes.' -- Carousel 'David Almond is a fine writer, one of the very finest we have. He is simply incapable of writing a bad sentence.' -- Michael Morpurgo 'One of these days, someone is going to notice that David Almond has been kidnapped by children's publishing and demand him back for adults. But until then, we must rejoice in every new offering of his.' -- Sunday Telegraph
