MEDIA REVIEWS

'Astonishingly beautiful ... I wish this book had been around when I was a child: I would not have felt quite as alone' - Neil Gaiman

'Beautiful and engaging, this book brought tears of joy to my eyes. It sums up my own journey, all the dreams and hopes I never dared speak out loud when I was younger. I was left filled with happiness and I have no doubt that this book will inspire those who discover its magic to embrace and nurture their own voice in this noisy world' - Coralie Bickford-Smith

'Stunning ... David Ouimet understands that to comfort means to strengthen, not to coddle. I want to send it back in time to my seven-year-old-self' - Stephen Fry

'I Go Quiet is poetical, magical and eerily creepy. It is bewildering and mysterious and a master at somehow finding the words to capture something so abstract - isolation, loneliness, solitude and sadness. But the book is not bleak - it offers light and shade, it is full of hope and comfort. It will become a solid silent friend to many readers' - Laura Dockrill

'A powerful book, about the intensity that can live behind silence; about the power of books and how they give us strength and knowledge to deal with the world in which we find ourselves. A wonder' - Matt Haig

'Completely original. Unique, in fact' - Philip Pullman
