Description

This urban fantasy penned for youngsters as well as adults in a distinctly British and whimsical voice, has gone down particularly well on both sides of the Atlantic. George Layton, the author and actor described it as: “A delightful fairy story that deals sensitively and compellingly with modern-day issues like homelessness, single mums and abusive parents.” Bramwell Tovey, the broadcaster and composer said that its “wonderful images and thought-provoking scenes” moved him to tears; while Lovereading.co.uk wrote the following: “What an entrancing story. A real flight of fancy which will engage children in the plot and, at the same time, increase their understanding of real human relationships.” To cap it all, Readers’ Favorite, the American book review website gave it their seal of approval by awarding it 5 stars.
