Rollicking entertainment. * The Sunday Times *
Bursting with influences, particularly Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, but has a crazy, pacy charm all its own. * The Guardian *
A harum-scarum fantasy adventure crammed with quirky action. * The Observer *
This wickedly amusing tale of trolls and trains and physics waylaid by fuzzics, reaches out to children with its quality writing and suspenseful rip-roaring inventive adventure, but definitely speaks to adults with nods to disgruntled postal workers and train engineers. * The Independent *
