"The Crooked Sixpence moves at the speed of magic . . . peeling away the mundane surface of the world to reveal something richer and deeper. Bell's world is part Tim Burton, part J.K. Rowling . . . This is a terrific debut" -- Soman Chainani, author of THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL
"This is a fast-paced and exciting adventure, featuring a Victorian-style otherworld, that will appeal to fans of the Harry Potter and Chrestomanci series . . . the book will appeal to both girls and boys. This is an extremely enjoyable read and a well-deserving addition to the magical fantasy genre" -- Andrea Rayner * booksforkeeps.co.uk *
"A wonderfully intriguing mystery . . . Uncommonly good!" -- Chris Bradford, author of THE YOUNG SAMURAI series
"Weird, whacky and utterly wonderful. Go to Lundinor. You won't ever want to come back" -- Joshua Khan, author of SHADOW MAGIC
