`An engaging philosophical fiction which will invite comparisons with Sophie's World but also draws on the tradition of British children's fiction such as The Chronicles of Narnia and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' -- Saturday Telegraph
`Lucy Eyre (definitely a Socratist) has written a nimble, witty introduction to the basic tenets of philosophy which never takes itself too seriously. A playful guide for young adults, it's a charming endorsement of the benefits of the examined life' -- Guardian
A book of tremendous originality: funny, clever and hugely
beguiling -- William Boyd
Intellectually rigorous, fun and charming with some of the
playfulness of early Stoppard or even Diderot -- Alain de Botton, Observer
`Entertaining and ingenious ... her book is altogether subtler and more elegant that Gaarder's'
-- Financial Times
