"Joan Aiken’s Felix trilogy is definitely the kind of reading material you can never have enough of. It’s got everything; adventure of almost every kind you could dream of, friendship, romance, history, travel . . . To me these books are timeless, and every generation needs them." (Bookwitch
"I thought this book was one of the best adventure stories I have encountered and a touching yet easy to read book. I would love to read the next in the trilogy and I would recommend it to boys and girls age eight and up for an unpredictable adventure." (Guardian Children's Book Review Team
The first book in a fantastic trilogy, full of excitement and magnificent adventures.
