'Thrilling, elegant and joyously macabre. You will love it to death'
Holly Black, author of The Spiderwick Chronicles||'One of the joys of reading Gaiman is how he subverts our expectations of magic, horror, fantasy and the mundane'
The Times||'This brief, dark, savoury adventure deserves to become a modern classic of children's writing'
Independent on Sunday||'Suspenseful, well-told and touching'
