'stylishly written, acutely observed, light-headed and often very funny. At times, it's also incredibly touching and insightful, particularly when dealing with the complexities of family life ... quality writing for children.' * School Librarian * '... hugely entertaining story effortlessly recreates a tightly knit world, imbued with a strong sense of belonging - a slice of childhood so multi-layered, touching and real that there's something for every child reader to identify with and savour. Here's a book that truly proves the joys to be had from reading.' * Books for Keeps * 'Warm, witty and wise, with unfeasibly broad appeal and proven anti-depressive properties, i would give this book to 9-year olds, teenagers and their parents.' * Sunday Telegraph * Hilary McKay's strength lies in her understanding of young people and her ability to evoke them very simply. * The Guardian * McKay has a genius for domestic comedy. * The Sunday Times * '... touching and hiarious. Beautifully crafted descriptive language makes this offering a real gem.' * School Library Journal * '... as wild and endearing as ever ... Another charmer for Casson fans.' * Booklist * '... we are so fond of this fresh, funny, foolish, wise, real family.' * The Horn Book Magazine * 'it's wonderful to have more stories about the engaging and uncommon Casson family!' * Parents Express * 'just the sort of crazy family you ache to be a part of.' * The Good Book Guide * 'Hilary McKay's wittily observed portrayals of family life are full of warmth, vitality and irrepressible good humour.' * Kate Agnew, The Guardian * 'It does what we hope JK Rowling would do: it makes everything you wish for come true, including the unlikeliest of outcomes.' * Sunday Times * 'A crazily fantastic story with loads of mad and hilarious moments.' * Independent on Sunday * 'Witty, warm and humourous ... family reading par excellence.' * Carousel *
