"Fans of Kate Dicamillo will particularly love this "

Sara Pennypacker, the bestselling American author of Pax, the heart-squeezing story of a boy and a fox, has written an important novel that stands up for the child who is, unashamedly, away with the fairies — or, in this instance, off with the knights and castles. There’s no better place to be, she seems to be saying, for it is these children who become the artists of tomorrow...

Fans of Kate Dicamillo will particularly love this beautifully written plea to give children time and space to think, roam and grow.
