The Lovereading4Kids comment

A beautiful book, lavishly illustrated in colour throughout, this is an accessible prose re-telling of the story of the Faerie Queen, Spenser’s romantic poem first written for Queen Elizabeth 1.

Ideal for reading aloud and sharing with a wide age group the story is lyrically retold capturing all the excitement and passion of the original.

Anne Fine on Geraldine McCaughrean:

'I reckon Geraldine McCaughrean knocks the socks off every other children's writer today. Everything she does is different and everything works – look at her list of prizes. She must write in tremendous bursts. Some years, she's so prolific the rest of us start joking that the fairies come in at night to do her work for her. Then she'll go quiet, so unlike all those writers who are persuaded by their publishers to come up with something every year, no matter how tired or drab. If Geraldine has nothing fresh to write, she doesn't write it.' (The Guardian)
