A thrillingly good book -- Martin Amis
On one level it's an exciting adventure story with great storms and earthquakes, terrific animals, unruly children and some dubious pirates. What more, when young, could you want? But all this coexists with another narrative, darker and more sophisticated, complex and tragic. You can read this book over again and have read a different novel. -- Michael Holroyd * Guardian *
A hot draught of mad, primal fantasy and poetry -- Rebecca West
A fascinating study in child psychology * New York Times *
