Eren caught my attention from the very first page. I really enjoyed it. Sure-footed, distinctive, strange, poetic. Simon P. Clark is a truly interesting new voice. (David Almond, author of Skellig)
This is a beautiful, illustrated short fables about the power of stories. (Financial Times)
Sure to appeal to older readers with a taste for the dark side, and probably to adults as well . . . This is an impressive debut from young author Simon P. Clark, who doesn't shy away from pushing his story to its darkest reaches. The ending will leave you shell-shocked. (Rebecca Davies Independent, TEEN BOOK OF THE MONTH)
Eren will both satisfy and excite your imagination. (The Bookseller 'Book of the Week')
If you let the story in, let Eren in, I think you'll be delighted and horrified by the inevitable conclusion. (We Heart YA)
Dark, moody and easy to get lost in, Eren is a great book that makes audiences really wonder about the power of a good story. (The Sprout)
Eren is a sophisticated look at truth and lies and the area inbetween inhabited by stories. On the other, it's a simple tale of a family in crisis. You're never quite sure what to believe and it never quite feels that the ground is steady beneath your feet. It takes skill to juggle all these balls and still involve the reader to such an extent they can't put your book down, but Clark carries it off with aplomb. This is storytelling at its best. (The Book Bag)
Savvy readers and would-be writers will love this exploration of story as an art form, a panacea, and an endless part of life. (Kirkus Reviews)
Offering a spiral of stories within stories, this atmospheric first novel features a boy searching for truth, who gets sidetracked by a remarkable discovery. Echoing the surreal quality and settings of David Almond's books, this novel adeptly mixes fantasy with reality and leaves some pressing questions unanswered. (Publishers Weekly)
The magical realism and storytelling details will draw fantasy readers, who will find meaty substance and enough Britishisms to lend flavor. While the conclusion is entirely logical, it's unexpected and will spark discussion, challenging readers to reflect on the nature of both stories and reality. (Booklist)
A beautiful and unsettling debut novel for middle grade and up, in which a young boy learns all about the dangerous power of stories – sharing them, keeping them, and putting yourself within them.See all Product description

The characters are fantastic for children around the age of 9-11 as they are funny and relatable and the themes of the story allowed us to have lots of great conversations around friendship, family, love and loss.
Throughout reading this book, we were also planning and writing our own fantasy stories and I don't think it's any coincidence that they were our best stories of the year!
Well done, Mr. Simon P. Clark! I'll be reading this book to my classes for many years to come!
It had everything anybody could ever want to read!
Read this book and be transformed by the amazing power of this book!:-D:-D:-D:-D:-D:-D
Wren is a great read for those like me who devour books but this allows you to slow down because you really want to live in this fictional world. It was heart warming and is a fantastic book, Simon P. Clark. I am amazed by your vivid language and and amazing speech by your characters, the only but I am not sure about is what is the bit at the start of each chapter because it is, or was, confusing me!! But otherwise it's a teen out of ten from me!!!! Well done! It's a really good book for everyone to enjoy, boys, girls and adults will all live to read this. WELL DONE IT'S A FANTASTIC BOOK SIMON!!!!!!!
I would recommend this to all those who love stories of all shades; including those which have a slight macabre air and a nugget of truth buried within.
Eren is a skilfully written page-turner.
A haunting novel that stretches the imagination with its vivid descriptions and poetic prose. A mystery of truth and lies in which dreams merge with reality, to increase the tension and suspense.
Eren is an excellent debut novel by a new and exciting author.
