Praise for The Secret History of Tom Trueheart, Boy Adventurer:

'Ian Beck's prose has a crisp and springy rhythm. His illustrations, gnarled silhouettes, are marvellously complex. If you turn them upside down, they change completely. A volume to treasure.'

Telegraph||'a delightful book, and one with a wide potential audience . . . a story with a timeless quality and great charm for bedtime reading upwards.'
Marcus Sedgwick, Literary Review||Praise for Tom Trueheart and the Land of Dark Stories:

'a pleasure to hold, read aloud and explore'

Amanda Craig, The Times
Amanda Craig, The Times||'the makings of a modern classic. The book is beautifully produced and the story itself has everything: pace, humour, a likeable hero and just the right amount of excitement to keep you turning the pages.'
