"a happy addition to the shelf"

Landman is a natural storyteller, always engrossing, and this tale, which sees boy and beast grow side by side, is a happy addition to the shelf of child-animal friendship stories. My only modern-world gripe? To complement the map at the start, I would have loved a historical note to satisfy my curiosity about the inspiration for her extraordinary world.
