'Her best book since Azkaban' - Evening Standard
‘Here, she has given us her Christmas Carol, and the result is a triumph. The clarity, warmth, sympathy and propulsion of her stories are exactly what a child enjoys. Above all, she is a mistress of suspense. When the climax came, in a scene where Jack must choose between hope and despair, I burst into tears.’ - Amanda Craig
