After Press Reviews

Extraordinary . . . one of the finest children's novels written in the last 25 years . . . Narrative at its gripping best * Sydney Morning Herald * [Morris Gleitzman] has accomplished something extraordinary. * Meg Rosoff * Haunting . . . dangerous and desperate, but also full of courage and hope. * Guardian on Once * One of the reasons this humane and carefully crafted book is so readable is that the author celebrates ordinariness and childishness even as he chronicles terrible cruelty. But prepare for shock and tears. -- Nicolette Jones (on Then, children's book of the week) * Sunday Times *
