"One of those rare books with a confident magic all their own - sheer genius" * Independent * "Full of hilarious, lovable characters this is a book you will want to read over and over again" * The Sunday Times * "Pullman knows it is not enough to bargain on the richness of children's minds: successful writing of this kind depends on the creation of imaginative worlds that have enough internal coherence to be not only comprehensible but inhabitable" * Independent on Sunday * "A wonderfully written adventure story" * Guardian * "A brilliant book" * Derby Evening Telegraph *
