Mal Peet's first novel, Keeper, won the Branford Boase Award and the Bronze Nestle Children's Book Prize; Tamar won the Carnegie Medal; and Exposure was the winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. A writer and illustrator, Mal produced many books for children throughout his lifetime, most of them in collaboration with his wife, Elspeth Graham.
This sombre and distinguished book is as fine a piece of storytelling as you are likely to read this year. * The Guardian * Mal Peet, who won the Branford Boase Award in 2004 for Keeper, has written a complex and rewarding novel which is two stories in one. Peet moves effortlessly and skilfully between the 1940s and the present and the characters are strong and well-drawn. Terrific stuff. * TES Teacher * This is an outstanding novel. Outstanding in every regard. It establishes Peet as a novelist of immense gift and versatility, for no two novels could be more different than Keeper and Tamar and yet be so equally brilliant ... Utterly convincing. * www.achuka.co.uk * ... one of the very best novels I have encountered in recent years. -- Siobhan Parkinson * INIS * "A fascinating and complex story, set against the backdrop of the Nazi occupation of Holland. Beautifully crafted, with a finale that took my breath away, this is simply unforgettable." * Publishing News *
