'A Dickensian tale where the evil of the villains is only equalled in volume by the generosity of the various benefactors young Mouse meets after running away from an appalling 19th-century boarding school. His final refuge, a crumbling London theatre, is vividly brought to life in a narrative that never flags' (Independent)
'Penny Dolan unfolds a story that will have her audience captivated from the intriguing cast list that precedes Chapter One to the bittersweet epilogue . . . This is a true page-turner - clearly influenced by the timeless storytelling of Charles Dickens and Charlotte Bronte, but still very much an original in its own right' (Primary Times)
'A unique and extraordinary book; an old fashioned Dickensian story presented in a very comprehensive, hugely entertaining and delightful way, it will keep the readers hooked until the last page' (The School Librarian)

Top customer reviews
Unlike Dickens' novels, though, this book is for children. The writing is beautiful, but it serves the purpose of the story, and everything moves along at a good lick. The chracters are colourful and vivid, and, as with Dickens, each has a poweful backstory of his or her own. This, together with the clever plotting and the lightly worn research, make for a richly extured, very satisfying novel.
