An intriguing subject for a children's novel and one handled with invention in Nikki Sheehan's debut novel...  revealing and touching. 

Martin Chilton, The Telegraph

This is a remarkably engaging, original and moving debut novel, posing important questions about imagination, isolation and grief, yet the author handles her material with such a witty, light touch... I loved it. 

Sally Morris, The Daily Mail

This book is just as powerful as imagination. Sheehan has written a book of integrity here.
