Praise for FEATHER BOY:
"...a brilliant debut novel that really does merit the category title of Book You Cannot Put Down."
Ian Hislop, Blue Peter Awards Judge
"Each copy should come with a torch for a spellbinding midnight conclusion."
"Inventive, original and full of surprises, it's the sort of dazzling debut novel that most publishers would fall over themselves to snap up..."
"Feather Boy is the most intelligent book for youngsters I've read for a very long time. Every 12-year-old will see a bit of themselves in Robert and won't be able to put this book down until Feather Boy's emotional, thought-provoking climax. Fabulous."
